Who We Are
Research Complex is the centre of multidisciplinary cutting-edge scientific research at the heart of Harwell’s thriving science and technology campus. Building on synergies with large scale facilities at Harwell, such as Diamond Light Source, ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, Central Laser Facility and the Rosalind Franklin Institute, our mission is to accelerate research collaboration and generate internationally leading science. Research Complex brings together research teams from universities and industry under one roof and we train the next generation of scientists and engineers.
We host the EPSRC funded Catalysis Hub through to EPSRC Future Manufacturing Research Hubs: Continuous Manufacturing and Advanced Crystallisation (CMAC) and Powder Manufacturing (MAPP).
Cellular and Molecular Biology
The Membrane Protein Laboratory (MPL) is a Wellcome Trust funded user facility and the XChem Laboratory developing methodology in computational and synthetic chemistry for Diamond Light Source.
Imaging and Spectroscopy
We host a suite of imaging and analysis facilities across Research Complex and the Electron Bio-Imaging Centre (eBIC at Diamond Light Source), including HarwellXPS and groups of the Central Laser F
