NEW CENTRE FOR EXPERIMENTAL MEDICINE TAKES SHAPE
The new building housing the Centre for Experimental Medicine at Queen's University Belfast, a project part funded by The Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust, takes shape.
This exciting new project received £143,000 of Trust funding in 2010 under the Medically Related Donations programme.
Entrance Elevation of the Centre for Experimental Medicine
The 60+ basic and clinical scientists working in the Centre focus on translating fundamental research into treatments for important eye diseases and microvascular disorders, with the objective of developing new avenues for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of serious ophthalmic and vascular diseases, thereby relieving human suffering.
The support laboratory with safety cabinets
The new purpose built facility, extending over 7400 square metres, is expected to open in April 2015. Research staff will relocate to the new building in June 2015, ushering in a new era for this interdisciplinary centre of excellence.
