Cambridge ‘Chemistry of Health’ given the go ahead
rhp has won unanimous planning approval for a £22m development at the world renowned Department of Chemistry at Cambridge University. The ‘Chemistry of Health’, will provide much needed additional space for current and new initiatives in the study of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, type II diabetes and other related diseases.
The Department of Chemistry secured £17.645m in funding from the UK Research Partnership Investment Fund (UKRPIF) in 2015 towards the development. The remainder has been met by industrial donation. The establishment of the new building is high priority, with work scheduled to commence in the summer of 2016 and be completed by the end 2017.
