This article was originally published in Clinica
The University of Edinburgh has secured £38 million ($54 million) of the £50 million target funding for what promises to be a unique medical research institute, after the Wolfson Foundation last month pledged £4 million. The provisionally-named Research Institute for Medical Cell Biology, billed as the UK's first facility of its kind, will specialise in cardiovascular, reproductive and inflammatory diseases. Since securing half of the target funding by July 2001 (see Clinica No 965, p 8) it has also received £3 million from the Medical Research Council. It is due to open in 2004.
