The Queen's Centre at Castle Hill Hospital provides a large resource for clinical research and has been awarded a Level 5 Macmillan Quality Environment Mark, the highest mark available. A short video with information on the Queen's Centre is available to watch here.
A BIOMEDICAL research centre made possible by a £1.5m donation from Dr Assem Allam has opened at the University of Hull. The centre, called the Allam Building, houses two research centres focusing on cardiovascular diseases and cancer. A further donation by the Daisy Appeal has helped with the purchase of two mini cyclotrons, proton-accelerating machines for use in medical applications. One machine is sited at the University for research and is already in use by the Chemistry Department. A second cyclotron, which will be based at Castle Hill Hospital will be in situ in 2016 and is the second phase of the charity's fund raising campaign; the first part was completed earlier this year and saw the opening of the Jack Brignall PET-CT Scanning Centre on the Castle Hill Hospital site in July 2014 by the Rt Hon Baroness Bottomley of Nettlestone.
