University of Glasgow Imaging Centre of Excellence (ICE) officially opened
29 March 2017
The unique medical research facility, which was built in collaboration with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) and with £16m funding from the Medical Research Council and Glasgow City Region City Deal, was opened by the Chief Executive Designate of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), Professor Sir Mark Walport.
ICE brings together world-leading research, cutting edge technology and international business investment under one roof and will act as a hub for translating science into economic and patient benefits for Glasgow, Scotland and the UK.
The project will bring 396 new high-value jobs to the city over a seven year period and has been independently assessed to contribute £88m to the local economy.
