Event summary

This year’s BioDundee Conference is a collaborative event created by the Scottish Life Science Community.

BioDundee in partnership with the University of Dundee are giving you the opportunity to have a tour of the Discovery Centre. In October last year Nobel Laureate and President of The Royal Society of London Sir Paul Nurse officially opened the new £26million Discovery Centre at the University of Dundee. The Discovery Centre is home to researchers supported by over £31million of research grants, bringing the investment in the total operation to well over £57million.

Come and see the facade of the building which features large anodised aluminium cladding panels incorporating artistic abstractions representative of four key scales of life science research: Molecular, Organellar, Cellular and Tissue. The scientific images have been translated into artwork by Professor Elaine Shemilt and her team from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. In addition, the new Centre contains a gallery called LifeSpace for art-science collaborative projects.

Dundee, UNESCO City of Design is the midst of a £1billion redevelopment of Dundee Waterfront which will reconnect the city and its river. Allan Watt, Dundee Watefront Director will give an update on the project and the V&A Museum of Design Dundee which will open in 2018. This tour and talk is an opportunity to find out more about the £1billion transformation of Dundee City Waterfront, which encompasses 240 hectares of development land stretching 8km alongside the River Tay, is a strategic, focussed and forward looking 30 year project (2001-2031) that is propelling the city to international acclaim.
