Building the Milner Centre for Evolution

We're building a major centre for evolution, named after Dr Jonathan Milner who donated £5 million towards its establishment.

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 is on the south side of the campus near the lake, includes offices, laboratories and a seminar room. There is also 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 took place alongside ongoing research by the Milner Centre intellectual group.

Construction work started in January 2017 and the building was opened in September 2018.
