UKRI infrastructure funding announcement: a statement from UK Biobank

Professor Sir Rory Collins, Principal Investigator and CEO of UK Biobank said:

“We are thrilled with UKRI’s announcement that, subject to final approval, UK Biobank will receive critical funding to replace and enhance its outdated infrastructure with faster, higher capacity and lower energy sample storage. This transformative funding will help create a state-of-the-art facility, based in Manchester, and enable UK Biobank to meet the exponential demand from UK and international researchers and unlock further industry investment. UKRI, and the MRC, have been long-term visionary funders of UK Biobank and we’re grateful to them for their steadfast support and for leading the way in ensuring that UK Biobank can enter its next phase of development and enable new scientific discoveries that improve human health.”
