So the Commons Science and Technology Select Committee has this morning published its latest report about the building of the UK Centre for Medical Research and Innovation (UKCMRI) in London. THES has a report here.
The Committee seems rather oddly to have raked over old coals in its questioning of whether London is the most appropriate place and asks that UKCMRI make every effort to work with colleagues across the UK so that opportunities are not lost. I say ‘oddly’ because I always thought this was in UKCMRI’s job specification anyway.
It also asks for a reconsideration of the issue of social housing near the site.
I didn’t know this but I understand that the building is going to be named after Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the structure of DNA,
