Nobel winner unveils campus science research facilities

In April Sir Paul Nurse, President of the Royal Society and Nobel Prize Winner, unveiled the latest addition to science research facilities on campus by officially opening the £6 million Mechanochemical Cell Biology Building at Warwick Medical School.

Funded through the Translational Medicine programme within the Science City Research Alliance, with additional input from the Wolfson Foundation and the University of Warwick, the building provides a customised environment for research into cell biology.

It has been specifically designed and constructed to cater for the specialist environment needed for state-of-the-art microscopes and other equipment required for groundbreaking research. Focusing on the molecular machinery that organises and co-ordinates movements in living cells will lead to a better understanding of fundamental cellular processes that may lead to improved therapies for a range of diseases.
