EXPERTS say a new world-class science centre in Merseyside will save countless lives after it opens tomorrow.
The £1.5m Liverpool University laboratories will speed up research into fatal diseases such as childhood cancers and malaria, with scientists aiming to build up a picture of how every single cell in the body works.
The research centre will allow scientists to study thousands of cells at a time, instead of just a few.
Funding for the centre has come from the Department for Trade and Industry, among others. The laboratories will be opened on Crown Street tomorrow as part of the university's £23m Bio-sciences Centre.
Dr Mike White, of the school of biological sciences, said: "The flexibility of the equipment and the range of biological tools available will allow greater and more detailed research."
