The Department's buildings are currently open for wet laboratory work only. We have carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and have introduced a number of new measures to ensure the safety of our staff, including reduced building occupancy, strict social distancing, 'family'-based working, and increased cleaning and hygiene regimes. All staff who can work remotely will do so for the foreseeable future. Please continue to contact us by email until further notice.

We work with a number of fantastic collaborators and their groups located around the world, including:



Our work would certainly not be possible without the generous financial support we receive to fund our research, purchase equipment, and sponsor our postdoctoral researchers and graduate students:

  • Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council
  • The Leverhulme Trust
  • The U.S. Department of Energy
  • Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council

We also acknowledge the University and its Colleges for their support and grants, particularly for undergraduate project students.
