£4.5m EU Boost for CUBRIC


Finance and Government Business Minister Jane Hutt has announced £4.5m EU funds to help Cardiff University develop a leading centre of excellence for brain research.

The new CUBRIC (Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre) building will enable researchers to rapidly test new ideas and theories to gain a faster understanding of the causes of a range of health conditions, including dementia, schizophrenia and multiple sclerosis.

The EU funds through Welsh Government will support the construction works of the new £44m facility on the Innovation Campus at Maindy Road. Finance Minister Jane Hutt announced the funding during a site visit as part of her 2015 Budget Tour of Wales.
