Research Facilities



The School of Pharmacy is located across four adjacent buildings on the Medical Biology Centre (MBC) site, a short distance from the main University campus. The administrative centre for the School is situated in the McClay Research Centre (main access via Jubilee Road). The School's main undergraduate teaching facilities are located in the McClay Research Centre (Pharmacy Lecture Theatre and MG12/13), the adjoining Darcy Building (Clinical and Pharmacy Practice teaching facilities), and the Medical Biology Centre (Laboratory G30 MBC). These buildings, as well as the neighbouring Whitla Medical Building, also house our extensive research facilities.
