Why the Royal Marsden?
The Royal Marsden was the first hospital in the world dedicated to the study and treatment of cancer. It was founded as the Free Cancer Hospital in 1851 by Dr William Marsden.
Dr Marsden, deeply affected by the death of his wife Elizabeth Ann from cancer, resolved to classify tumours, research the causes, and find new treatments. The hospital, initially consisted solely of a dispensary and the drugs prescribed were palliative and aimed at treating symptoms, but it allowed Dr Marsden the opportunity to study and research the disease.
More than 150 years on, with hundreds of innovations and new ideas still flowing from the building and its complement of researchers, technologists and clinicians, the Royal Marsden is an international focal point for the study of Cancer, as well as a renowned venue for the sharing of new ideas and techniques thanks to its dedicated conference centre.
Centrally located in the heart of London, it is geographically convenient to dozens of hospitals, thousands of clinicians and many universities performing research in the field of medical imaging.
