The Royal Free Centre for Biomedical Science will provide three expert facilities in microscopy, genetics and proteomics, which were previously unavailable at the Royal Free campus. Professor M.B. Pepys FRS has been appointed Scientific Director and Dr Justin Hsuan, Executive Director.

The purpose of the centre is to facilitate inter-departmental research and a free flow of information at the Royal Free campus, through initiatives such as a new seminar series, common room and website. The programme began in March 2004, with a range of new seminars in biomedical science initiated by Dr Satish Keshav and Dr Hsuan. According to Dr Hsuan: "The centre provides possibilities for increased collaboration between life scientists and clinical researchers, which we envisage will lead to improved biomedical research throughout the campus."
