Research Complex has a creative and innovative environment like no other. We are home to over 400 scientists, belonging to a wide variety of research groups, from dozens of universities and national facilities, researching across the life and physical sciences. Our mission is to drive collaboration across disciplines to improve our understanding of science and engineering, ultimately benefiting the world we live in. Our laboratories are supported by a dedicated in-house core team of experts and technicians and equipped with state-of-the-art equipment.
We are supported by our stakeholders and work with leading universities and research organisations across the globe. We offer a unique base for research groups and start-up companies who are able to make full use of our cutting-edge equipment located next to major facilities, such as Diamond Light Source, the Central Laser Facility and the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source. Our publications, case studies and showcase articles highlight the breadth and quality of research at Research Complex.
