£73 million centre for translational medicine opens at Imperial College London

As reported by PharmaTimes, a major new £73 million research facility at Imperial College London for Translational and Experimental Medicine opened yesterday.

The Imperial Centre for Translational and Experimental Medicine (ICTEM) combines laboratory space for up to 450 scientists with a dedicated facility for evaluating and developing new medical treatments through clinical trials.

The six-storey building is located on Imperial’s Hammersmith Campus, alongside Hammersmith Hospital. The upper floors of the building constitute one of the largest cardiovascular research facilities in Europe, including the headquarters of the British Heart Foundation Centre of Research Excellence at Imperial.

Chancellor George Osborne who opened the facility said: “It’s an honour to open this new Imperial Centre for Translational and Experimental Medicine. It is what this country’s vision for the future of life sciences is all about. This new Centre rises to the challenge of ensuring we remain a world leader in life sciences. The future is academic research, clinical practice and industrial application coming together”
