pounds 18M TO RESEARCH SERIOUS ILLNESSES.

Byline: LORRAINE FISHER

MEDICAL schools in the UK were given an extra EUR18million yesterday to boost research into serious illnesses.

Eight schools will get EUR2.3million each to build state of the art facilities, hire world class staff and carry out research in vital areas including cancer, genetics and diabetes, said Health Minister Lord Warner.

The British Department of Health said it wanted to make sure the NHS got the benefits of the latest scientific developments.

Lord Warner said it was "great news" for the schools and for the patients they helped. He went on: "Investment in research saves lives. This extra funding will mean that future NHS doctors can play their part in developing new treatments for tomorrow's patients."

The schools are East Anglia, Brighton and Sussex, Durham and Newcastle, Hull and York, Keele and Manchester, Leicester and Warwick, Leeds and Bradford, and the Peninsula in Exeter and Plymouth.

Prof John Tooke, Dean of the Peninsula medical school, said: "I am delighted the Government has recognised the contribution medical schools make."
