Support Services and Facilities
One of the cornerstones of LMB science is the provision of excellent support services – freely available to all members of the Laboratory, from PhD students to group heads.
On offer is a huge range of Core Technology Facilities ranging from world class mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance facilities to scientific computing.
The Core Technology Facilities are complemented by a wide range of on-site and off-site Scientific Support facilities, including: biological services, a crystallisation facility, DNA sequencing and DNA synthesis.
The LMB’s scientists also benefit from access to what are probably the finest workshops in any UK laboratory. In practical terms, having an Electronics Workshop and Technical Workshop on site means that design, prototyping and development happen far faster at the LMB than in most other laboratories, which rely on outside contractors.
In addition, all staff at the LMB have access to a wide range of support services, including: high quality IT support; an expert Library and Information Service; experienced creative help from the Visual Aids team and practical support from stores and purchasing.
All of this ensures that scientists spend their time doing what they do best, with the right facilities and expert help immediately to hand.
