Funding for medicines research

Patients are to benefit from £3 million funding for a new imaging centre, which will contribute to the creation of personalised medicines.

The government money will be part of the University of Glasgow's £15.3m Clinical Research Facility on the New South Glasgow Hospital site.

Personalised medicine involves the tailoring of medicines for individual patients. The unit will house advanced imaging equipment that offers a way to look at lots of patients and find ways of predicting which treatments will be efficient and effective.

Health Secretary Alex Neil said: "Personalised medicine holds huge potential in the development of new treatments for diseases such as cancer."
