New Central Research Facility
We are investing £15m to replace existing research facilities with the erection of a new biomedical research centre. This will house space for biomedical research, including laboratories and an MRI machine. A portion of the space will be used to house mice and rats and carry out research using these animals.
We are committed to world leading teaching and research. This new building is designed to improve our capacity to conduct biomedical research of the highest quality.
