The Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton - Centre for Molecular Pathology

Lead Contractor: Osborne

M&E Contractor: Balfour Beatty

Consulting Engineers: Design & Buil

Supply and commissioning of Phoenix Laboratory Control systems for maintaining tight pressurisation conditions throughout this world class cancer research laboratory facility.

The Centre for Molecular Pathology is a collaborative initiative between The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust and The Institute of Cancer Research, aiming identify the molecular mechanisms that drive cancers and to target them with a new generation of treatments.

The Building comprises of Four Laboratory Suites over two floors, Phoenix Pressure independent Venturi Valves will provide flexibility in the future to accommodate changes in clinical procedures.

The new, purpose-built centre on the Sutton site provides an innovative environment with state of the art laboratories, bringing together world experts in molecular pathology, bioinformatics and translational research.

The centre’s research objectives aim to expedite the process by which personalised medicine is embedded as a routine part of cancer care for patients. The focus will be to develop molecular diagnostics and biomarkers for cancer, to allow patient treatment to be personalised. Researchers aim to identify reliable biomarkers of disease prognosis or treatment response, and new molecular targets for a range of tumour types. This will drive the development of novel anti-cancer drugs.
