University of Dundee
Discovery Centre for Translational and Interdisciplinary Research Building
UKRPIF award: £11.9 million
Officially opened: June 2014
The Discovery Centre building is home to the University of Dundee’s Drug Discovery Unit, a discovery group working across diseases, translating biology research into novel drug targets and candidate drugs.
The UK Research Partnership Investment Fund (UKRPIF) award, delivered in partnership with the Scottish Funding Council, funded state-of-the-art equipment, with a strong computational capability, within a purpose-built, open-plan, four-storey building.
The centre received co-investment support from charitable sources, including over £50m of co-investment and R&D funding from Wellcome, and additional co-investment from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, among other funders.
