Many of the advances made within the Cell-Matrix Centre are underpinned by analytical research facilities that allow its researchers to probe cells and tissues in innovative ways. Highly experienced staff maintain and continually upgrade the equipment, and they work closely with Centre members to produce innovative and exciting research.

We also have access to other dedicated core facilities within the Faculty of Life Sciences, ranging from histology and atomic force microscopy, to macromolecular crystallography, deep sequencing and bioinformatics.

The four core facilities on these pages are largely funded by the Wellcome Trust and many of their staff are Cell-Matrix Centre members.
