Our locations and facilities

Research facilities

We have excellent laboratory, clinical and office facilities at Glenfield Hospital, the Leicester Royal Infirmary and the Henry Wellcome Building at the University of Leicester. 

At Glenfield Hospital these include a recently-opened £12.5 million Cardiovascular Research Centre. The CRC provides an additional 2,200m2 facility, including a biobank capable of storing samples from up to 100,000 individuals, a clinical research informatics unit and a data-to-knowledge unit, which together will capture, code and translate anonymous patient data for research and will accommodate an advanced IT link between the University and the hospital.

Our locations

The Department of Cardiovascular Sciences is split across four sites. As car parking spaces are limited at all sites, please allow plenty of time to park, as you may have to park some distance away from your destination. Please check parking details in the links to the various sites for more detailed information.
