Major investment in Queen’s University set to benefit retinal and diabetic research

Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) has announced the receipt of a £32 million (EUR39.7M) investment to establish a Centre for Experimental Medicine. The new research facility will specialize in scientific research into finding cures for eye disease, diabetes and developing a global programme into understanding the genetics of complex chronic diseases. The combined investment from the UK Research Partnership Investment Fund and Atlantic Philanthropies, an Irish-American philanthropic foundation, is expected to make a fundamental impact on heath care in Northern Ireland and abroad. The £15M (EUR18.6M) received from Atlantic Philanthropies is the largest single donation received by Queen’s University.
