The Centre for Translational Medicine brings together the organisations of King’s Health Partners and generous funding from the Guy's and St Thomas' Charity to work in partnership to improve the health of people locally, nationally, and globally, by accelerating research and innovation that improves the detection, prevention, and treatment of disease. 

The Centre for Translational Medicine aims to: 

  • Address the major health burdens for local, national and global communities – and to challenge existing health inequalities.  
  • Combine our outstanding clinical and scientific expertise to deliver excellent outcomes for patients.   
  • Develop the next generation of clinical-academic leaders, skilled in delivering impactful translational biomedical research.   

Latest Awards 

The Centre launched its first funding call Essentials for Translational Medical Research in July. Ten areas of activity have received awards, underpinning areas of clinical and academic excellence with emerging strengths and cross-cutting themes of data and diagnostics, to address the needs of patients and communities, and reduce health inequalities.  

Funding opportunities

Clinical Research Excellence Fellowships

The KHP Centre for Translational Medicine has released a second funding call, the Clinical Research Excellence Fellowships for postdoctoral clinical academics.  

The fellowships aim to support future clinical academic leaders, providing protected time for research for up to two years. Fellowships are open to all health professions, and projects must be focused on understanding disease mechanisms in humans and the translation of these insights into early interventions.  This includes use of diagnostics and devices, and the development of proof of concepts, such as through early phase clinical trials of new treatments and development of advanced therapies.  

These fellowships should be used to support clinical academics to secure competitive external funding for research, such as intermediate or advanced fellowships.   

Internal and external candidates are welcome to apply.  


A template is provided but final applications must be submitted online. 

The deadline for applications is 5pm Monday, 15 January 2024. 


  • Friday 3 November 11am - 11:45am. 
  • Thursday 7 December 11:30am - 12:15pm
