Introduction to the Centre for Cutaneous Research


The Centre for Cutaneous Research (CCR) started life as an attached laboratory to the Imperial Cancer Research Fund in 1983 with the appointment of Irene Leigh as Consultant Dermatologist to the London Hospital (now BLT). In 1989, the laboratory became the ICRF Skin Tumour Laboratory (STL) as an independent clinical unit and in 1996, the Centre for Cutaneous Research (CCR) was formed as a joint development between the ICRF STL and Academic Dept. of Dermatology.
