A new £1.3 million Biosciences facility that will enable vital research into human diseases and illnesses, as well as addressing the shortage in biomedical scientists, has been officially opened at the University of Gloucestershire.
The cutting-edge laboratory, based at the School of Natural and Social Sciences at the University’s Francis Close Hall campus in Cheltenham, will provide researchers and students with access to the latest technologies in biomedical science supporting the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
The facility was officially opened at a ribbon-cutting ceremony carried out by the University’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Jackie Labbe and Andrew Usher (Lead Biomedical Scientist, Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust).
The University’s Bioscience courses have been ranked 1st nationally for student experience by the Guardian and The Times University League Tables 2022. Visit the university website to find out more.
