Project: Great Ormond Street Hospital
Project Location: Guildford Street
Main Contractor: Skanska
The Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children will be a world-class multidisciplinary centre of excellence that will bring together clinicians from GOSH and researchers from the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health and UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science.
The centre will be the first of its kind in the world. It will bring together hundreds of clinicians and researchers under one roof to drive forward new treatments and cures for children with rare diseases, and will support translational research that focuses on taking discoveries from the lab bench to the patients’ bedsides.
The purpose-built research centre will house laboratories, manufacturing facilities, research write-up areas and meeting rooms for scientists and medical teams to progress their work. The development will also provide much-needed outpatient clinical space, completing the translational research circle from pure research to practical patient treatment.
