  • Simon Sainsbury Centre

Developed over centuries, Cambridge is a precious and uniquely productive environment for innovation. 

Cambridge has received extraordinary gifts towards capital projects in the last year. These facilities will change both the fabric of Cambridge and the lives of those who teach, study and learn in them.

The new Cavendish Laboratory will house the Ray Dolby Centre in recognition of the £85 million given by the Dolby family in memory of the late Ray Dolby (Pembroke 1957). 

The Simon Sainsbury Centre was openend by Prince Andrew in May and received further support from several donors including Fadi Boustany. 

The Chemistry of Health building, which is now open, will have its formal launch on 21 September to recognise key donors including R Derek Finlay, the Frances and Augustus Newman Foundation and Elan Pharmaceuticals. 

Also the Capella building received generous support and will now become the Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre.
