The University is working with Neutron Therapeutics and EPSRC to deliver a space to carry out work with a Hyperion Neutron Accelerator and to support connected activities and spaces within the school in collaboration with local enterprises and in the production of isotopes for PET scanning in the NHS.
The space is located adjacent to the existing Medical Physics Building and is predominantly below ground in a secure concrete facility.
GF Tomlinson are carrying out the Main works, which are due to complete in August 2021, and the installation of the specialist equipment will follow thereafter.
