Opening of Dundee's new £26m Discovery Centre in Life Sciences

I was pleased to be invited by the University of Dundee to attend today's official opening of Dundee's new £26m Discovery Centre in Life Sciences in the university campus.

The Discovery Centre - for Translational and Interdisciplinary Research - will further enhance Dundee’s internationally renowned life sciences capacity, including in drug discovery - an area in which the University of Dundee is the leading university in the UK and one of the foremost academia-based centres in the world.

There was a fascinating tour of the building and it was great to hear about the cutting-edge life sciences research that is taking place.    The Discovery Centre is a hugely impressive and a great addition to the university campus.
