The new centre is the Centre for Translational and Interdisciplinary Research (CITR) which aims to reduce the costs of bringing safe new drugs to market.
This extra funding will pay for the completion of a new centre and add 180 research jobs to the 1000-plus scientists, students and support staff already employed in the college of life sciences. It is estimated that the new CITR project will cost £38 million.
Professor Pete Downes, the university’s principal and vice-chancellor, said “It will help create world-class capability and infrastructure for interdisciplinary work bringing together basic science, drug discovery, health informatics and mathematics. This is also, of course, a very notable boost to economic development of the life sciences sector within Scotland.”
