�12m flu research centre opens in South Mimms

A NEW �12m flu and stem cell research centre has opened in South Mimms.

The National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC) this week moved in to the state-of-the-art “Dutch barn” style building in Blanche Lane, which will accommodate a UK stem cell bank, influenza resource centre, laboratories, and plant room.

The centre was built by construction company Morgan Ashurst, which has offices in Falcon Way, WGC.

Keith Williams, Morgan Ashurst project manager, said: “It is always satisfying to work on projects which will be of benefit to the whole community.”

NIBSC head of operations Steve Murray said: “This was a highly complex project. To bring it in on time and on budget is a credit to all within the team.”
