Research at ICH
The Institute of Child Health (ICH), and its clinical partner Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), is the largest centre in Europe devoted to clinical and basic research and post-graduate education in children’s health. ICH/GOSH is a major centre for cell therapy, including haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and gene therapy. This centre has treated more patients in clinical trials of gene therapy than any other institution worldwide, currently conducting three clinical trials of gene therapy for three separate disorders, with clinical trials for additional disorders, including some forms of cancer, in development.
There is a strong research interest in cell and gene therapy within the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences at UCL, which has the largest concentration of clinicians and researchers active in this area of translational medicine in Europe. This is reflected by many groups conducting high-quality research and clinical trials using gene or cell therapy, including Infection and Immunity, Institute of Ophthalmology, Institute for Women’s Health, Institute of Genetics and the Cancer Institute.
