New healthcare teaching facility for DMU
A NEW £8M healthcare teaching facility has opened following a major refurbishment scheme at De Montfort University’s (DMU).
The new Edith Murphy House, which will house students and staff from the University’s Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, has completely transformed an existing 1960s building. A glass extension has been built to create a new entrance to the building which now features modern lecture theatres and learning facilities equipped with the latest technologies.
The renovation has also enabled students and staff from the School of Nursing and Midwifery, who were previously located at the Charles Frears Campus, to be based at the city campus. New practical suites which include hospital, house and community set ups and laboratories have also been installed for use by the Faculty in DMU’s Hawthorn Building.
The building is named after philanthropist Edith Murphy, whose many donations included more than £400,000 for the development of an artificial pancreas currently being produced at DMU.
