Alexander Stone Building, Garscube Estate


The Alexander Stone Building opened at the Garscube Estate in 1976. The building was designed by Boswell, Mitchell & Johnson and housed the Department of Microbiology which was then taken over by the Departments of Medical and Radiation Oncology. The building also housed the Beatson laboratories. The building was named after the lawyer and bibliophile, Sir Alexander Stone who funded its construction.

The Alexander Stone Building was demolished in 2011 and replaced by the Wolfson Wohl Cancer Research Centre (WWCRC), which opened in 2014. There is a plaque in the WWCRC that recognizes Sir Alexander Stone.
