Hull And East Yorkshire Medical Research Centre
Who we are
The Charity was set up in 2003 with the express intention of supporting medical research and development in the locality, particularly in relation to diseases of the heart and cancer. The first project was the construction and equipping of a Medical Research Centre which was opened in 2008. This cost £8.5 million. Subsequently a second project was undertaken which was the construction and equipping of a £ 4.5 million PET-CT Scanning Centre (The Jack Brignall Centre) sited on the Castle Hill Hospital campus in East Yorkshire. The Charity is currently aiming to raise £6.5 million for a Molecular Imaging Research Centre to stand alongside the scanning element of the PET-CT project. The former will allow on site manufacture of new radio-isotopes for this rapidly expanding medical imaging technology.
