University launches Centre for Medicine Appeal video

The University is investing £32 million of scarce capital resources in a brand new, state-of-the-art Centre for Medicine building, and is seeking to raise an additional £10 million through an ambitious fundraising campaign to complete the build.

Acting as a hub to bring together, for the first time, the University’s leading academics, researchers, clinicians and students; currently spread across multiple sites in the city, the new Centre will completely transform medical teaching and improve the lives of many patients in the region and beyond.

In a new fundraising video released today, a local woman fighting cancer endorses the University’s plans to transform medical teaching, hailing the emphasis on empathetic and holistic treatment. Final-year medical student, Ted explains the impact the new facility will have on future students and Professor Nick London, Head of the Department of Medical and Social Care Education emphasises the difference the new innovative curriculum will make to the lives of patients.

Representing the largest investment in medical teaching and applied research by a UK university in the last decade, the new facility is set to open on Lancaster Road this autumn.
