Sir David Attenborough Officially Opens George Davies Centre – University of Leicester

The, Associated Architects designed, medical hub at the University of Leicester has been officially named in honour of the fashion retailer and design guru George Davies.

The Vascular Limb Salvage Clinic (VaLS) at Glenfield Hospital, which is run by the university, was unveiled as the George Davies Centre by Sir David Attenborough and his nephew Michael Attenborough, who are co-patrons of the University of Leicester’s Centenary.

Professor Philip Baker, head of the College of Life Sciences, said: “The centre will become a central hub speeding the translation of research to real world improvements for patient treatment.”
