School of the Biological Sciences


Research facilities and training, libraries, support services


The School houses a number of research facilities, libraries and support services, many of which may be used by members of other Schools. Likewise School members can access complementary facilities elsewhere in the University. If you would like your research facility or service listed here please get in touch.

Training is provided by many facilities. Consult the websites for details; some timetabled training opportunities are also listed on their own page.

There is a new University searchable database of major equipment, which is part of the initiative to promote effective sharing of resources. In this you will be able to look for specific items such as microscopes or search with terms such as imaging. To add your equipment to this database see the contact information on the Equipment Database website.

Additional information is available on departmental websites.

UPDATED: Research computing and storage requires University login (Raven) because the page contains price information that is similarly protected on the parent site.
