BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Centre
The West of Scotland has one of the highest rates of cardiovascular disease in the world, making the University of Glasgow an ideal location for research into heart diseases and the like.
The six level, £12m research centre, which opened on the same day as the Glasgow Biomedical Research Centre in the Sir Graeme Davies Building next door, focuses its research on genetics and vascular biology applied to cardiovascular disease and is divided into six different research groups: BHF Cardiovascular Research Group, MRC Cardiovascular Research Group, BHF Cardiac and Imaging Group, Heart Failure and Pharmacology Group, CVS & Renal Failure Group and Metabolic Medicine Group.
After a cursory glance inside the building, I deemed it to look quite a bit like its twin, with the major exception of having a wall of donors in the lobby, naming the some 1,200 people who helped fund the centre.
