I am editing a scientific paper that specifies British spelling. But the name of the author's research institute is The XXX Center for Medical Research. Should I change this to Centre?

    This might be a better question to ask on Academia. But I’d advise to leave the name of the center as the actual name of the center. – J.R. Mar 8 '18 at 10:00

No. Proper nouns should retain their spelling, even when this is at odds with the normal style and spelling rules. So, The Atlanta Center for Medical Research is a centre of research into medical matters.
