Cardiff University’s flagship new research building is to be named in honour of its late Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Hadyn Ellis. The Hadyn Ellis Building will be a striking landmark development, at the heart of the University’s new Maindy Park research campus. The £30M Building will house highly advanced facilities for some of the University’s world-leading interdisciplinary scientific teams, including the European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute and the Neuroscience and Mental Health Research Institute. The ground floor will include an attractive public area for lectures, displays and conferences about Cardiff University’s work.
Cardiff University is recognised in independent government assessments as one of Britain’s leading teaching and research universities and is a member of the Russell Group of the UK’s most research intensive universities. Among its academic staff are two Nobel Laureates, including the winner of the 2007 Nobel Prize for Medicine, University President Professor Sir Martin Evans.
Founded by Royal Charter in 1883, today the University combines impressive modern facilities and a dynamic approach to teaching and research. The University’s breadth of expertise in research and research-led teaching encompasses: the humanities; the natural, physical, health, life and social sciences; engineering and technology; preparation for a wide range of professions; and a longstanding commitment to lifelong learning. Three major new Research Institutes, offering radical new approaches to neurosciences and mental health, cancer stem cells and sustainable places were announced by the University in 2010.
