A £39 million research centre that will house one of the largest biomedical complexes in Europe officially opened at the University of Manchester last week. The A.V. Hill Building - named after the Manchester scientist Archibald Vivian Hill, who shared the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1922 - will house 300 scientists in 50 research groups drawn from Manchester's faculties of life sciences, and medical and human sciences. The centre will mainly focus on neuroscience and immunology. The building was built with assistance from the Government's Science Research Investment Fund.
