The LMS is located on the Hammersmith Hospital Campus. The main LMS building is located on the North East corner of the site, and is accessible from the Eastern road on the campus. The wider institute is located across a number of buildings marked on the map.
How to find us
Our address is:
UKRI MRC Laboratory of Medical Sciences,
Du Cane Road,
Google maps will not take you to the MRC LMS building, but to the centre of the postcode at the middle of the Hammersmith Hospital Campus, so once you reach the campus, enter via the East Gate entrance and follow the road past the ICTEM building on the left, and under the Commonwealth Building straight ahead of you, until you see the LMS in front of you.
Please see the image of our entrance below.
