The University of Adelaide today welcomed a Federal Government grant of $60m to support construction of its new medical school building in Adelaide's West-End, announced by Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

The University will construct a new clinical health building, bringing the schools of Medicine and Nursing together, next to the new Royal Adelaide Hospital and the South Australian Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI). The vision is to also incorporate the Dental School into the new facility providing seamless collaboration between the three clinical disciplines.

University of Adelaide Vice-Chancellor and President Professor Warren Bebbington said the Australian Government grant would ensure the multi-storey facility would be ready for students when the hospital opens in 2016.
