The Milner Centre for Evolution brings together our intellectual expertise in evolution research in this state-of-the-art research facility, helping the University to lead this field.

The building, which will be on the south side of the campus near the lake, will include offices, laboratories and a seminar room. There will also be an area for outreach activities.

Part of our Department of Biology & Biochemistry, the Centre is named after Bath alumnus, Dr Jonathan Milner, who donated £5 million towards establishing the Centre.

The planning and construction of this new building is taking place alongside ongoing research by the Milner Centre intellectual group.

The University has received planning consent for the building with work due to start early 2017.
