Status: Complete

The new laboratory for Electron Microscopy is based within the iconic Grade II listed Roger Stevens building and the significant investment has transformed the current building into an outstanding laboratory. The existing space with high ceilings and sound insulation of the building have been refurbished provide an ideal home high-endend microscopes.

Work was completed to the existing facility for biomolecular nuclear magnetic resonance in autumn 2015.

The dynamic environment to be created will also become the home to state-of-the-art facilities for cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) and biomolecular nuclear magnetic resonance (bioNMR).
