Centre For Research To Be Built In London

Construction News Image
Camden Town Council has approved plans for a new Centre for Research to be developed between Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), University College London (UCL) and the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.

The new Centre for Research into Rare Disease has been designed by architects Stanton Williams. It will enable clinicians and researchers to work side-by-side in advancing our understanding of rare diseases, identifying new and better treatments and manufacturing innovative medical devices.

Situated adjacent to the hospital, it will incorporate an outpatient department that will host clinics for children and young people with a range of rare and complex conditions. It will also house a variety of laboratories, specialist equipment rooms and workspaces where more than 350 experts will develop diagnostic procedures, manufacture gene and cell therapies and create personalised medical devices.

The total cost of the centre is expected to be £90 million, which has been met principally by a transformative gift of £60m from Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, the wife of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, founder of the United Arab Emirates. It will also be funded by £20 million of fundraising income from Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and a £10 million grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England's Research Partnership Investment Fund.
