A number of programme researchers will be relocating to the new Capella Building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus later this year. The building was recently featured on BBC Look East as part of a piece looking at the development of the Biomedical Campus and you can watch the video and find out more about the new building here.
The new building is sited at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus adjacent to Addenbrookes Hospital and is due for completion in Spring 2019. Built by Kier Construction and designed by architects from The Fairhurst Design Group, the six-storey centre will be located directly next to the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute. Capella will be home to three institutes – the Wellcome-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute, the Cambridge Institute of Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Disease (CITIID), and the Milner Therapeutics Institute. The building will contain state-of-the-art research facilities along with a café, seminar room and exhibition space for events and will bring together 650 members of staff who are currently located across a number of university sites.
