Murray Foundation supports Strathclyde University’s health technologies

The Murray Foundation is delighted to support advances in Scotland’s health technologies, in partnership with the University of Strathclyde.

A recent grant will support the purchase of a much-needed Zeiss inverted Fluorescence Microscope, critical for cell and tissue engineering, as part of the redevelopment of Strathclyde’s Centre for Biomedical Engineering. The microscope enables research, including evaluating the safety of metal-on-metal hip implants, 3D bioprinting of cells, and uncovering cellular changes that underlie cardiovascular disease.

The Foundation has also pledged to support four undergraduate student scholarships in Biomedical Engineering and Strathclyde’s Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences, enabling bright young Scots from disadvantaged backgrounds to start careers to discover new treatments and technological innovations.

David D Murray, Trustee of the Murray Foundation said: “We are delighted to be supporting Strathclyde University’s programme over the next 4 years and look forward to seeing the progress and development of the students over this period.  This donation highlights one of our Foundation’s aims of the advancement of health and education.”
