Core Facilities

Core Facilities at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) are run by experienced staff who are able to help with experimental design, troubleshooting and data interpretation.

In some facilities, equipment is available for researchers to use, while in other facilities your experiment is carried out for you according to a service level agreement. All facilities encourage interaction between users and members of the core facility.
