A variety of non-medical research facilities and resources are available for use in research projects at Queen Mary University of London, which also hosts around 50 research centres or institutes for use by an individual or collaborative researcher teams.
Below are listed the Queen Mary research facilities with links to their individual websites.
AMIS was established in 2016 following a strategic investment of over £1.3m and draws together over 45 pieces of state-of-the-art advanced molecular imaging equipment. This umbrella service operates within dedicated facilities across the institutes of the School of Medicine and Dentistry, namely Barts Cancer Institute (BCI), Blizard Institute and William Harvey Research Institute (WHRI), the School of Engineering and Material Sciences and the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences. Over 16 highly experienced core facility staff support a broad spectrum of multi-disciplinary users ensuring cutting-edge imaging capacity at one of the leading research centres in the UK and the world.
The Antenna Measurement laboratory supports the work of the Antennas and Electromagnetics Group and offers one of the best university experimental facilities in Europe. Contact email@example.com.
The Augmented Human Interaction (AHI) laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies including full-body and multi-person motion capture, virtual and augmented reality systems and advanced aural and visual display technologies. Founded through a collaboration between the Interaction, Media and Communication and the Computer Vision research groups, the AHI enables exploration of the potential of digital media to enrich and transform human communication.
Facilities that are based in the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences include: an analytical laboratory; a confocal microscopy facility; high field liquid phase and solid-state NMR; informatics resources; medium field liquid phase and solid-state NMR; a protein purification facility; surface characterisation (XPS\ESCA, UPS, AES); an X-ray diffraction facility; and, a Zebrafish facility.
A range of well-equipped laboratories supports the work of the Centre for Condensed Matter and Materials Physics including equipment for the production of nanotubes and functionalised fullerenes, and laser ablation facilities to produce nanoparticles.
A fully-equipped film and drama studio is at the heart of the stunning ArtsTwo building, a £21m development which also houses the School of History.
The Archives are located in the Mile End Library and hold a wealth of fascinating institutional, personal archives and rare prints, dating from the 17th Century to the present day. The collections document the rich history of the College and provide vital evidence for research in the arts, humanities and social science. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The mechanical testing labs in the School of Engineering and Materials Science are equipped to carry out tests to determine mechanical properties of materials such as yield and ultimate tensile stresses, Young's modulus, shear modulus, Poisson's ratio, fracture toughness, and hardness.
The School of Engineering and Materials science is well-equipped with a range of additional facilities - see SEMS Research Facilities.
The NanoVision Centre is a multimillion pound, state-of-the-art microscope unit, which brings together the latest imaging technologies to open up new avenues for research, combining high-resolution imaging with structural, chemical and mechanical analysis. As a multidisciplinary facility, the NanoVision Centre has the capacity to advance the frontiers in materials science, cell and molecular sciences, structural biology, solid state physics and the earth sciences.
The Physical Geography laboratory facilities have been designed specifically to cater to physical geography and environmental science research, providing ample opportunity for varied undergraduate classes, postgraduate and academic research. The laboratories of the Centre for Micromorphology are also used for analytical work undertaken on a consultancy basis.
Queen Mary is host to around 50 dedicated research centres or institutes, covering Cross-Faculty, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and Faculty of Science and Engineering. For more information please see the research centres page.
