Medical research centre London

5th December 2007

A new state-of-the-art medical research centre in central London has been backed by the government.

The Medical Research Council (MRC) has revealed that Prime Minister Gordon Brown will sell a 3.6 acre plot of land next to the British Library and the King’s Cross St Pancras train station to a consortium including the MRC, Cancer Research UK, the Wellcome Trust and University College London, for £85 million.

The consortium’s plans follow debate over the MRC’s desire to move the National Institute for Medical Research from its 47-acre site in Mill Hill, North London, to central London.
