The new GlaxoSmithKline Centre for Sustainable Chemistry provides unrivalled facilities for chemistry. The focus on sustainability is reflected in the building itself, which incorporates the latest technologies to allow it to be carbon neutral over its lifetime.
The laboratory provides a focal point for forging strategic partnerships with other institutions and the UK pharmaceutical industry and creates a global hub to attract post-doctoral and visiting researchers wishing to develop expertise in sustainable chemistry, supporting both the university’s and GSK’s commitment to develop international talent.
