Bug art

LSTM research centre - artist's impressionStudents from Liverpool Community College are to produce works of art to adorn the hoardings around the new Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine Research Centre during building work. The centre, on the corner of London Road, got £18 million from the North West Regional Development Agency and European Objective One programme to fund research, with a further £28 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to help fight malaria. Shepherd Construction began work last month and commissioned the art as part of strategy of involving local communities. "This is a great way of getting people thinking about the importance of the work that will be undertaken here," said school Director Janet Hemingway, according to the BBC, "and will give everyone something to look at until the new centre is completed next year."
