The first turf has been cut for the University of Oxford’s new neuroscience research facility on the John Radcliffe Hospital site. Construction is expected to be completed in spring 2019.

The new building, supported by generous funding from the Wolfson Foundation and the Wellcome Trust, will provide purpose-built facilities for the Wolfson Centre for the Prevention of Stroke and Dementia (CPSD), as well as research space for the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging (WIN). Both of these units are part of the University’s Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences within the Medical Sciences Division.
