The SCRM was praised for its emphasis on translating findings made at the laboratory bench into tangible treatments for patients. The design of the building promotes collaborations between clinicians and scientists, aided by the centre’s location next to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
The Centre’s sustainable approach to research has scientists acrossthe centre sharing core services, thereby also streamlining costs and promoting interaction.
The £54 million building at Little France, which officially opened last year, is the first large-scale, purpose-built facility of its kind and and provides accommodation for up to 250 stem cell scientists and clinicians. It was designed by architects Sheppard Robson.
