Cardiff University aims for the top with new cancer research building

A £30m facility in Cardiff is hoping to pave the way for developments in cancer research. The Hadyn Ellis building will be the new home to some of the world's leading scientists in cancer and mental health research, which Cardiff University hopes will put them in the world's top 100 faculties.

Bringing together the University’s best scientists in cancer and mental health in one state-of-the-art facility will help us do even more of this work and meet some of the world’s grand challenges head-on.

As well as a striking landmark development, it is the gateway to the University’s ambitious plans for the redevelopment of the whole of the Maindy Road site. It will also be part of our strategy to become one of the world’s top 100 universities.

– Professor Colin Riordan, Cardiff University’s Vice-Chancellor
