It has been recently reported that University of Leicester has gifted a donation of £7m from the John & Lucille van Geest Foundation. This donation is more than a spectacular reward for the department as every single effort made by the staff here, is to save a life.
Using this donation, the university has decided to construct a new biomarker facility, in a subsequent location of its cardiovascular research centre at Glenfield Hospital. The university is already a home to some of the best cardiovascular consultants, surgeons and informaticians.
And by introducing the proficient team of its academic researchers along, the university now aims in effectively improving the quality of its services towards people and their lives; to a far better extent. They become capable enough of saving lives not only in Leicestershire, Rutland and the UK, but all over the world.
It was 18 months ago, when the university started making efforts to raise funds for their £12.6m project. Till now, they were able to raise more than £5m from various trusts, foundations and a public campaign. £4m was committed by the university itself. And now with this latest donation, they are absolutely obliged to take such a big fly.
It is the university's hard work in developing structures of the country since last so many years that convinced van Geest Foundation to make such a large donation.
