Biosciences facilities

The biosciences facilities that our students use on a regular basis during their studies are modern and include the latest equipment.

Students on our courses spent more time working on practical projects in our laboratories compared to other institutions.

Science laboratories

The School of Life and Medical Science moved into a brand new science building which opened in the Spring of 2016. It accords us with world-class laboratories for our teaching and research.

The new building provides spacious, naturally lit laboratories and social areas which create an environment that fosters multi-disciplinary learning and research.

Our biosciences laboratories include facilities for:

  • nucleic acid analysis
  • fermentation biotechnology
  • cell culture
  • molecular biology
  • pharmacology
  • microbiology
  • protein analysis
  • advanced imaging

Specialist equipment

There are a number of facilities which have high speed internet access for bioinformatics that are ideal for:

  • chemical and biomedical analysis
  • genetics and cell biology research

In addition students can access the latest equipment for chemical  synthesis and purifications, PCR , qPCR and 2D protein gel analysis systems.
