It will become part of the largest hospital in Europe specialising in complex oral health care and advanced ear, nose and throat treatments.
The Institute will also move in order to ensure our students, researchers and academics continue to have enhanced opportunities for education and research.
Clinical research and teaching functions will relocate to new, state-of-the-art facilities in the Rockefeller Building, just around the corner from the new hospital. This places us at the heart of the UCL campus, next door to University College Hospital and the Macmillan Cancer Centre, hence facilitating collaborative working across teaching, research and patient care.
Research activities which do not involve direct contact with patients will be relocating to the UCL Campus within the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead. This will allow members of our Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering and Microbiology units to enhance collaborations with the UCL Divisions of Surgery and Infection and Immunity as well as the develop new fundable research allied directly or indirectly to oral health and disease.
We look forward to welcoming students to our new facilities in October 2019.
