The building will provide world-class facilities for around 200 scientists carrying out research on how to repair human physiology from within, using the body’s own blueprints. This will enable the discovery of new drugs and therapies to tackle disease through a deep understanding of developmental biology.
The building will form a gateway between the Campus and the wider city, incorporating landscaping and amenity space. The information boards from the public consultation earlier in the year are available online.
This will be a busy time on the Old Road Campus, as two smaller projects are also in preparation – a rooftop extension at the top of the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology and the fit-out of much of the basement of the recently-completed Innovation Building.
