Moray Life Science Centre

 

The building work for the Alexander Graham Bell Centre, the name for the new Moray Life Science Centre, has been completed.

The project has been jointly funded by Moray College UHI, HIE, NHS Grampian and EU, and provides a principle research, education and continuing professional development (CPD) facility for the life science sector in the North East of Scotland.

The centre, which is being jointly occupied by Moray College and NHS Grampian, is constructed on three floors and provides a clinical skills training unit, high quality meeting facilities, state of the art learning and teaching rooms and space for digital health research and commercialisation activities.

The conference facilities are available for use by external organisations and there is commercial space for SME’s to lease.  In addition research activities and commercialisation are being introduced to increase knowledge transfer activities with local companies and through dissemination of information through course and curriculum development. Remote and digital healthcare based on research and development currently undertaken amongst NHS clinicians based in Moray will be the key initial focus for the Alexander Graham Bell Centre research activity.  This is a critical project for the Moray area and will deliver key benefits to the ambition of diversifying the local economy and meeting the aims of the Moray Economic Strategy.
