Scientific facilities

The Institute is well provided for when it comes to on-site facilities, equipment and expertise. Our technical support staff are here to ensure researchers get the best use out of all the facilities on offer

Expertise is key

It’s not just about having pieces of kit. Researchers need support and training to make the most of our facilities and cutting-edge systems. Larger pieces of equipment are shared across the Institute, and within each group the lab managers and postdocs help new recruits with lab-specific culture and procedures.

A special team

Two Senior Research Associates run the Super-resolution microscopy group, working in a stable basement room where they build custom systems to enable our biologists to answer specific questions.
