About the Enterprise Unit

The Enterprise Unit acts as the technology and knowledge transfer hub for The Institute of Cancer Research, providing the experience and expertise to put in place a wide range of agreements between our scientists and industry.

A meeting at the ICR's Sutton Site

The unit consists of a team of 12 who together have more than 40 years’ experience in collaborating and contracting with commercial organisations and ICR scientists – turning our discoveries into patient benefits.

Although it is not our primary objective, the ICR has been extremely successful in getting a financial return from the commercial exploitation of its research. This income is largely ploughed back into scientific research at the ICR.

We currently have a number of partnering and licensing opportunities in therapeutics, targets, diagnostic biomarkers, devices, and platform or software applications. If you are interested in working with us, please contact enterprise@icr.ac.uk, or call 020 8722 4030.
