New Usher Institute puts data at heart of BioQuarter

Professor Nicholas Mills, Senior Responsible Officer for the Data Driven Innovation (DDI) Programme in Health and Social Care at the University of Edinburgh

The proposed Usher Institute building is one of the key elements of the new Edinburgh BioQuarter.

The building is planned for completion in 2023 and Professor Nicholas Mills senior responsible officer for the Data Driven Innovation (DDI) Programme in Health and Social Care at the University of Edinburgh, explains why the building is needed and outlines its key elements.


He said that the ground floor of the building, in particular, will reflect the collaborative nature of the institute and the need to foster partnerships. As well as being highly accessible to different interested groups, the area will comprise colocation hubs that encourage cooperative working and collaboration.

Different “neighbourhoods” will be created on the upper floors of the building, reflecting the different interests of those involved in the programme.
