2014 : Lister would be proud of New Lab Facilities

A new state-of-the-art £15 million laboratory which has just opened at Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI) has already been highly commended in the Design Award category by NHS National Services Scotland.

The new Lister Laboratory is named after Joseph Lister who is famous for his ground breaking work in the prevention of wound infection.

He worked at GRI between 1861 and 1869 and his work during this time with carbolic acid changed the face of surgical procedures making it much safer for patients.
