Project Capella is a new building containing state-of-the-art laboratories currently under construction for the University of Cambridge.

The new building, sited at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus adjacent to Addenbrookes Hospital, and due for completion in 2018, will allow all CSCI groups to work together in one place. This will result in a fully integrated, vibrant and cohesive stem cell community, within a purpose-built new building, ideally placed to capitalise on its unique intellectual and clinical environment. Being based at the Addenbrooke’s hospital site will allow for greater collaboration between scientists and clinicians and further advance the application of stem cell discoveries into the patient setting.

Built by Kier Construction and designed by architects from The Fairhurst Design Group, the six-storey centre will be located directly next to the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute. 

Along with CSCI, Capella will also house the Cambridge Institute for Immunotherapeutics and Infectious Disease, and the Milner Therapeutics Institute, both with explicitly translational goals. The building will contain state-of-the-art research facilities along with a café, seminar room and exhibition space for events.
