Paul O’Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre, Glasgow

10 October 2004
Paul O’Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre, Glasgow
Opened in 2008
This new Centre provides clinicians and researchers in Glasgow with access to much-needed new facilities and equipment.

Until the opening of this important new centre, haematology research was scattered around six different sites in Glasgow, making collaboration between NHS work, research and clinical activity very difficult. Often staff had to work with outdated equipment or inadequate facilities.

We contributed £500,000 towards the cost of this major new leukaemia research centre in Scotland.

The facilities now available at the Paul O’Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre will help research teams to translate the results of their work into new treatments which will benefit all leukaemia patients.

We have worked with Professor Tessa Holyoake, Director of the Centre, to provide funding to support a senior research post in the Centre – to lead a programme of research into the causation and development of childhood leukaemia.
