Our History

United Kingdom

2004: The George Institute’s work in the UK started with the establishment of a London office housing a research group analysing investment trends in the development of new treatments for neglected diseases. In 2008, this group received a major award from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.


2010: The George Centre for Healthcare Innovation was established in partnership with the University of Oxford, with generous support from the Oxford Martin School founded by Dr James Martin. In 2013 this officially became The George Institute, UK.


2015: The George Institute, UK moved to the Nuffield Department of Women’s & Reproductive Health, within Oxford’s Medical Sciences Division, creating new opportunities to work together towards improving the health of women across the life course.


2020: The George Institute entered into a new partnership with Imperial College London to pursue world-class research in health systems, women’s health, and multimorbidity. The George Institute UK moved to Imperial College London in July 2020.
