Excellence is the key

October 29, 2004

Readers of The Times Higher would be misguided if they concluded from your report ("Rivals vie for new MRC site", October 22) on the relocation of the National Institute for Medical Research that the principal strength of the King's College London submission was financial.

King's has world-class strengths in all the key areas of research, such as structural biology, developmental genetics and neuroscience, while its recent research strategy has focused on bringing biomedical and clinical research closer together. The campus at Guy's would provide an ideal site for the kind of international centre of excellence that is envisaged for the new centre.
