As the local councillor I was delighted to attend the opening of the Discovery Centre at the University of Dundee.
This centre will add to Dundee's excellent reputation for life sciences research.
It was good to listen to the Nobel-laureate Sir Paul Nurse speak about the
importance of turning life sciences research into treatments which make a
difference to the lives of many people.
The strength of life sciences research in Dundee is important to the economy of the city.
I think that the
universities and the council should be looking for ways in which we can ensure
that these economic benefits derive to all parts of Dundee.
I hope that this new centre plays its part in the continuing success of life sciences at the University of Dundee.
