Designed for students to collaborate, innovate and drive discoveries

The new Centre for Tissue Repair (CTR) marks the next phase of world-leading research facilities on the Edinburgh bioQuarter, providing the University of Edinburgh with adaptable space for 250 researchers including a specialist translational research centre, seminar areas, and a café.

Capitalizing on the synergies between clinicians, patients, scientists, and industry partners, the CTR will epitomize translational research and medicine. Removing the traditional gaps of communication and barriers between scientists and clinicians was a key design driver in enhancing the ‘bench to bedside enterprise’.

The CTR features agile themes-based discovery environments that integrate open labs, support labs, offices, and write-up space to provide a sense of community. Scientists are visually-connected—horizontally and vertically—through a ‘discovery forum’. The two-story spaces promote collaboration by directly connecting floors within the laboratory environment.

The CTR creates a sense of place to retain, attract, and inspire the world’s best scientists and students to collaborate, innovate, and drive discovery in a flexible state-of-the-art research environment—effectively-promoting scientific cohesion as future developments enrich the bioQuarter campus.
