Biosciences Development

Bio-Science aerial shot of forthcoming buildnigA major Biosciences Development underpinning our strategic health and translational research efforts is planned for the east side of Pearse Street. This impressive structure will regenerate a currently unused space, bringing it firmly into the 21st century. The Biosciences Development will redefine the scientific research landscape in Trinity College and for the first time create a meaningful consolidation of activities not only in the biosciences, but also by extension in the information and communication technologies area, in natural sciences, in the social sciences and in the physical sciences. Creation and judicious population of a new Biosciences Development will copper-fasten the College's position as the leading scientific university in Ireland, and enhance our ability to execute world-leading research in those areas identified as core strengths within the College's stated strategic plan.

The School of Medicine expects to get a new home in the Biosciences Development building, which is due to be built by 2011. Please visit Biosciences Development website at
