We provide outstanding research facilities and services for researchers in Biological Sciences and the wider University, local and corporate communities.
Biological Science's facilities comprise of newly-built shared research space, with all the equipment and resources expected in a modern life science laboratory, together with independently managed research facilities. The shared laboratories contain individual research groups and common equipment areas housing tissue culture laboratories, electrophysiology facilities, a protein production laboratory, genomics equipment including real-time PCR, radiation laboratories and specialised research space for CL2 microbiology. The research facilities are independently operated and provide specialised state-of-the-art research equipment supported with dedicated technical expertise.
All facilities operate on a cost recovery basis and are open to users in other Academic Units within the University and outside organisations. With the exception of the Interdisciplinary Centre for NMR all facilities are located within the new Life Sciences Building.
