A building to enable a new research initiative which will push the boundaries of medical science by drawing physics deeply into the life sciences.
The first of two phases, this three-storey building creates a suite of open accessible research laboratories, teaching rooms and offices.
The building unites researchers from the departments of Physics, Biochemistry, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering as well as the School of Clinical Medicine. It is sited next to the world-famous Cavendish Laboratory, home to the Department of Physics at West Cambridge campus.
A wooden sculpture of the double helix structure of DNA is a spectacular symbol of what the building represents.
