History and funding of the Centre

ACCI exterior

Addenbrooke’s Centre for Clinical Investigation (ACCI) was opened by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh in June 1999. The Centre was constructed following a strategic decision by the healthcare company GlaxoSmithKline to establish a hospital-based clinical research centre. The company wanted to be able to investigate the effects of drug therapies and the underlying causes of disease directly in patients and volunteers. The venture gained the support of Addenbrooke's Hospital and the University of Cambridge Clinical School. The major financial commitment for the ACCI (£11m) was provided by SmithKline Beecham, with substantial additional funding from the Technology Foresight Challenge Award, which is associated with the Medical Research Council, and the British Heart Foundation.


How to find the ACCI

The Addenbrooke's Centre for Clinical Investigation (ACCI) is a building on the Addenbrooke's Hospital site linked to the rest of the hospital via the 'clown corridor', which runs between the concourse and the Rosie Hospital.
