Our New Building

CUBRIC is a part of Cardiff University’s Maindy Park site, which is a redevelopment housing a range of buildings promoting the university’s ambition to be a world-leader in Research and Innovation. The whole site is a significant asset to Cardiff University, the city, region and beyond.

As a hub for neuroimaging, CUBRIC offers access to a combination of facilities and expertise unique in Europe. The Centre consolidates smart-specialisation expertise in neuroimaging in Wales, and is comparable in scale with facilities in North America. Our new Maindy Park site enables research done in Wales to compete with the very best in the world.

“Cardiff University is home to some of the world’s leading experts in brain mapping, neuroscience, clinical research and genetics, and is widely recognised for its research excellence in this area. The new facility will be world-class and it’s incredibly exciting to think about the new research that will be done to enhance our understanding of the brain”

Professor Elizabeth Treasure, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Cardiff University

We worked closely with architects IBI to design a building which can facilitate the bespoke and high-end equipment housed within it. Sustainability is central to the design and it is hoped that the building will achieve a BREEAM excellent rating. The new CUBRIC Maindy Park site opened in the Spring of 2016.
