The Chancellor's Building is our main teaching facility and provides modern academic space for the University’s new Medical School including academic administration.
It also houses two lecture theatres, the medical library and some research laboratories and is currently home to the Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine and the Multiple Sclerosis and Euan MacDonald Motor Neurone Disease neuroregenerative centres.
The building was opened on 12 August 2002 by HRH The Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh, Chancellor to the University.
Alan Davie’s Morton Tapestry "To a Celtic Spirit" hangs in the impressive entrance foyer and the Historical Collection of the Polish School of Medicine is also kept here. The Polish School of Medicine was a unique war time initiative set up in 1941.
