contributed by davidb

Paul O'Gorman was 14 years old when he was diagnosed with - and died from - leukaemia in 1987. His sister Jean also died from cancer nine months after Paul. Courageously, their parents formed a charity; "Children with Cancer UK" to raise funds to help battle the illness. This building, named after Paul and supported by the charity, serves over 250 scientists and support staff and lies adjacent to the undergraduate medical school - part of which is listed. This older structure was refurbished to provide staff offices and administrative facilities. An existing courtyard was covered over with ETFE to create a new cafe area. A full-height glazed slot forms the entrance lobby that links the two buildings and houses a cantilevered concrete stair. The new structure accommodates heavily serviced laboratories within column-free spaces, located at the heart of the footprint, with the write-up areas overlooking Huntley Street. Precast concrete features heavily within the scheme.
