A new £115 million biomedical research centre will pave the way for treatments for some of the biggest population health issues around the globe, potentially improving the everyday lives of millions.

Li Ka Shing Centre Opening May 2017

Opened with the support of a £20m gift from the Li Ka Shing Foundation, the centre will bring together researchers from related teams to analyse biomedical data from hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, speeding up both our understanding of diseases and the development of new treatments for conditions including cancer, Alzheimer’s and a number of infectious diseases.
