We connect you with world-class facilities, training and expertise, so that you can complete your research.

The power of our research infrastructure extends beyond our machines and buildings.

We have a network of highly skilled and specialised staff attached to these facilities, who will help you complete your research. Our specialised facilities and the staff who support them, are organised into platforms.

Platforms provide services relevant to all researchers and access to specialised resources. This ranges from microscopy facilities and 7-Tesla MRI machines to data visualisation and artefact conservation.

Other universities, institutes, research organisations and industry partners can also access our specialist platforms.
