Future Seminars

Future sessions will focus on how our facilities and technologies are supporting particular areas of research as well as highlighting new technologies that might enable us to enhance and innovate our research. Seminars will be held on an approximately monthly basis.


LIV-SRF was established in October 2020, following a review of shared research facilities and technology platforms in Health and Life Sciences, and looks to build on the success of the Technology Directorate. We have an established portfolio of Shared Research Facilities (SRFs), led by academic experts and supported by dedicated technical staff to ensure that researchers have access to world-class equipment and expertise to pursue outstanding science.

Our ~20 SRFs are grouped around three main themes:

  • Bio-Imaging, includes light and electron microscopy, MRI, NMR, FACS/Cytometry and histology
  • Bio-Resources, includes in vivo facilities and gene editing
  • Multi-Omics, includes genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics
