Our Core Facilities provide researchers with access to state-of-the-art equipment, in-house expertise, and training. 

We are supported by twelve facilities, whose remits range from genomics and proteomics to whole animal imaging. The facilities play a crucial role within the Institute, working in partnership with research groups to support innovation, and ensuring our scientists are using the most up-to-date technologies to streamline their research.
