The University of Cambridge will break ground in November of 2019 on the Heart and Lung Research Institute in Cambridge in the United Kingdom. Sited adjacent to the Royal Papworth Hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, the facility will accommodate 380 academic and industry scientists engaged in the discovery of new therapeutics and diagnostic tools for cardiovascular conditions. The Heart and Lung Institute will house collaborative biomedical research labs for the study of genomics, population sciences, and translational medicine, as well as offering a ten-bed clinical trials unit. The project is funded in part by a £10 million commitment from the British Heart Foundation and £30 million in governmental support.
