Biomedical research center opens in Liverpool
Date:2/10/2009

Scientists at the University of Liverpool will launch a new national research centre to further understanding into infections such as HIV and tuberculosis.

The Centre, which will be opened by Sir William Stewart, Chairman of the Health Protection Agency, is one of 12 in the country to be funded by the National institute for Health Research (NIHR) as part of the Government's health research strategy. The joint venture has received 13.5 million funding from NIHR and a further 6.4million from the North West Development Agency. It will be run jointly by the University, the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals Trust and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.

The Centre will focus on four areas hospital and community acquired infections, chest infections, sexual health, and safety of antimicrobial drugs. Researchers will also have access to state-of-the-art facilities such as a new clinical research unit to trial new drug treatments and a medical microbiology facility for the identification and safe handling of bacteria.

Sir William said: "This is important work that will take place in first-rate facilities.

It is a privilege and pleasure to open such an important and worthwhile development."

Professor Peter Winstanley, Executive Director of the Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), said: "This prestigious new centre puts Liverpool at the cutting edge of research and means we can pioneer new drugs and diagnostic tools for a range of conditions.
