Plans for the latest addition to Oxford University’s Old Road Campus will be on show on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 February. This is the new Institute for Developmental and Regenerative Medicine which will employ over 200 researchers.

Caveat emptor. Thanks to @ox_tale, @Howard_S, @JPDoy and @RobonaBike for information.
