Our research facilities include a leading-edge molecular biology and tissue culture facility, confocal microscopy, and an ion imaging/electrophysiology laboratory.
The equipment purchased with this grant allowed this to become a state-of-the-art facility.
Many of the clinical faculty are cross-appointed in basic science departments to facilitate the supervision of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows.
The GIDRU Building
Completed in 2006, GIDRU is located within Kingston General Hospital, in a wing that is located directly across the street from Botterall Hall, which houses the Queen's University medical sciences departments.
The building includes 10,000 sq. ft of state-of-the-art laboratory and ample office space, and incorporates the latest sustainable design and energy-efficient features.
An interesting side note: During construction of the GIDRU wing in September 2005, a 1911 time capsule containing the hospital's Annual Report, fundraising program and copies of the Daily British Whig and the Daily Standard were discovered.
