Find out more about what's going on with the Pears Building in our October newsletter. The Pears Building will be home to the UCL Institute of Immunity and Transplantation (IIT).

This month we address some of the key concerns raised at public consultations such as worries about traffic congestion, noise and air quality during the forthcoming build. We also have an interview with Dr Siobhan Burns (pictured), who runs a research group at the IIT focusing on the underlying causes of primary immune deficiency disorders (PID). Our October newsletter also hears from Jose Drabwell, a patient at the IIT, who talks about her hopes for the future.

The Pears Building project is a collaboration between the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, the Royal Free Charity and University College London.
