Substantial donation enables building of centre for research into rare diseases in children 

Great Ormond Street Hospital has today received a very generous donation from Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, wife of the late founder of the United Arab Emirates. This gift will enable our planned centre dedicated to paediatric research into rare diseases to be built and open on schedule in 2018.
16 July 2014

The centre is a partnership between GOSH, University College London (UCL) and the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity. 

The building, whose site is adjacent to the hospital and the UCL Institute Child Health, is set to bring hundreds of clinicians and researchers together where they will see patients and access state-of-the-art laboratory facilities under one roof.
