Designed to meet the rapidly growing demand for research space, the building is a result of a successful bid in 1998 to the Joint Infrastructure Fund (JIF).
Based on its excellent scientific research strengths, UWCM was successful in attracting over £11 million of investment from JIF including a substantial commitment by the Wellcome Trust.
The Henry Wellcome Building for Biomedical Research in Wales includes 4500m2 of state-of-the-art laboratories and equipment for fundamental research.
This is adjacent to a purpose-built Clinical Research Facility which will facilitate applications of basic research findings to improved patient care.
The laboratories will initially be occupied by highly successful groups working in the areas of Infection & Immunity, Cancer Biology and Psychiatric Genetics. In addition there will be shared core facilities providing state-of-the-art technology for Cell Imaging, Genomics and Proteomics as well as seminar and meeting rooms.
The Henry Wellcome Building is the largest development of its kind ever undertaken in Wales and will provide a flagship for biomedical research in Cardiff and the Principality
