Sir Michael Uren at the White City Campus A £40 million donation from alumnus Michael Uren OBE (pictured) and the Michael Uren Foundation – the most generous in the history of the College - will fund this new 13-storey centre.

Here engineers, scientists and medical researchers will collaborate on new, or more affordable, medical technology.

It will house research laboratories, an outpatient clinic, a 150-seat auditorium and a series of social spaces to encourage informal exchange of ideas.

The building has a triangular plan which responds to the layout of the existing masterplan, while affording a highly flexible and efficient servicing strategy in which the laboratory and clinical spaces are served by interconnected facilities on each floor.

The Michael Uren Biomedical Engineering Research Hub is due for completion in 2019.
