UK’s world-leading science campus to welcome thousands of public visitors this July

Harwell Campus, near Didcot in South Oxfordshire, plays a leading role in keeping the UK at the forefront of research. In July 2015, Harwell will welcome visitors to explore behind the scenes, and to see first-hand where some of the world’s most pioneering research takes place, meeting the scientists and technicians who deliver the breakthroughs and discoveries they hear about on the news. The Harwell Campus hosts a range of world-leading scientific facilities. More Here

The Research Complex at Harwell (RCaH) is a new, multidisciplinary laboratory that provides facilities for researchers to undertake new and cutting edge scientific research in both life and physical sciences and the interface between them. It is located on the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) site on the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, adjacent to Diamond, the new third generation Synchrotron Radiation (SR) source. It is also close to other leading facilities on the campus: the ISIS neutron source, Central Laser Facility, Membrane Protein Laboratory, MRC Mammalian Genetics Unit and Mary Lyon Centre, and a Biological Solid State NMR Facility.

It is open, on a competitive basis, to research teams from UK universities, as well as to Diamond and RAL staff. The MRC is leading the project on behalf of RCUK, in partnership with BBSRC, EPSRC, NERC, STFC and Diamond.
