New medical Centre to transform teaching, research and patient care

The new £42 million Centre for Medicine, which will transform healthcare and medical education across the region, will be the focus of the University’s second Heartbeat Ball this Thursday (22 May).

More than 400 guests from communities across the city and county are invited to an evening of glitz and glamour at Athena in the city’s cultural quarter in support of the University’s ambitious plans to create – for the first time in one place – a central hub for leading academics, researchers, clinicians and students, currently spread across multiple sites in the city.

Work is already underway on the new six-storey Centre for Medicine at Lancaster Road which will be the new home of the departments of Medical and Social Care Education, Health Sciences and Psychology.

The fundraising ball will include a champagne reception, gala dinner, Flambé Circus and an auction for lots that ‘money-can’t-buy’ and guests will have the opportunity to find out more about the University’s largest ever capital project.

The University’s Heartbeat Ball 2014 will be held on Thursday 22 May at 7pm, Athena, Leicester. Various corporate and group packages are available including tables of 10 for £450. For ticket/table bookings, additional sponsorship opportunities and more information, please call 0116 252 2491, email
