New neuroscience building handed over to users

The new purpose-built facilities for the Centre for the Prevention of Stroke and Dementia and the Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging were handed over to their new occupants in early June.

Both research units are part of the University’s Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences within the Medical Sciences Division. The new neuroscience research centre is designed to help maintain the University’s world-leading position in the field. Its façade is made up of four main materials – glass, terracotta, bronze and wood – with natural ventilation and sound attenuation provided through a sophisticated design.
