As part of its relocation to Oxford the Kennedy Institute moved to a new £34 million purpose-built building located on the University Old Road Campus in 2013.
The new Kennedy Institute building was designed by Make Architects in collaboration with Nightingale Associates, with the aspiration of creating a modern, functional environment that facilitates high-quality research while promoting a strong sense of community and interaction.
The building has a total area of 7,300 square metres with four floors of laboratory and office space. Two further floors within the building are dedicated to the plant and equipment necessary to support such an advanced research facility. The building can house close to 200 researchers and support staff and offers a large and beautiful atrium providing a space for staff to meet to discuss their work.
Located on the Old Road Campus, the Kennedy Institute is at the heart of an internationally recognised site for biomedical research. This rapidly growing campus provides a vibrant and interactive research environment, bringing together basic and clinical researchers working in diverse areas including genomics, structural biology, vaccines, cancer biology and health informatics. It is home to more than 10 research centres, including the Structural Genomics Consortium, the Target Discovery Institute and the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics, and has close links to other University research centres and hospitals.
