The University of Sydney spent $220 million on a new research and education centre that will focus on the diagnosis and treatment of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

The cash for the project was raised through a combination of a government infrastructure bond and private university funding.
Covering 46,700 square metres the area is equal to a 30-storey office block, or similar to the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Once completed it will be home to about 950 researchers and 1455 undergraduates with a variety of laboratory spaces, clinical research facilities and a biobank.
