Plans to build a multi-million pound centre to research killer diseases have been submitted for approval in Dundee.
The city's university, in partnership with NHS Tayside, intends to build a new Clinical Research Centre (CRC) attached to Ninewells Hospital.

It hopes to develop a clearer understanding of disease, leading to earlier diagnosis and better treatment.

A planning application detailing the project was lodged with Dundee City Council on Wednesday.

Subject to approval, the £12m three-storey centre will be purpose-built on the north eastern point of the Ninewells building, across from the multi-storey car park.

Focused on areas of national health priority, the centre will provide dedicated facilities to conduct patient-orientated research in a variety of ensuite bedrooms, small investigation rooms and open ward areas.

The facility will enable a wide range of clinical testing and measurement in a professional, safe and friendly environment.

A spokesman for Dundee University said the CRC would function as a "Research Hotel", where researchers in experimental medicine could book beds or other facilities to conduct their patient-based projects.
