University of Glasgow progress £16m medical imaging facility
The University of Glasgow has drawn up tentative plans for the development of a £16m Imaging Centre for Excellence (ICE) within the new South Glasgow Hospitals campus, one of a number of satellite schemes designed to capitalise on proximity to the medical hub.

This follows the recent confirmation of funding from chancellor George Osborne in order to aid understanding and treatment of a range of human diseases.

Osborne said: “The UK Government will invest £16m in the Stratified Medicine centre of excellence at the impressive new South Glasgow Hospitals Campus.

“This is a hugely exciting new technology that has the potential to develop treatments for diseases such as cancer diabetes and dementia. It’s a major investment in Glasgow’s growing life sciences industry.”

Still at the early design stages with detailed designs currently being worked up by BMJ, the scheme will allow direct ambulatory access for patients and linked to a neighbouring Clinical Research Facility.
