Biomedical Research Centres (BRCs) aim to drive life-saving treatments from labs to hospital wards.
They are formed through partnerships between leading NHS organisations and universities.
Their remit is turning scientific breakthrough into new patient treatments.
The BRC at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTT) and King’s College London, is one of eleven overseen by the National Institute for Healthcare Research across the UK.
It appointed Admiral at a pivotal time in its development.

“Admiral are thoroughly professional, have a deep understanding of the clinical, academic and commercial sectors and always go the extra mile to ensure delivery of key messages to the appropriate stakeholder groups.”
