Our research is supported by state-of-the-art facilities, which help our academics stay at the forefront of new ideas, and deliver research that evidences truly world-class results.

In 2008, the Waterhouse Building underwent a £3 million refurbishment project, and now provides new office space for the Institute. Part of the original Liverpool Infirmary built in the 1890s, the buildings were designed by architect Alfred Waterhouse, famous for landmarks such as the Natural History Museum in London.

The Eleanor Rathbone Building houses cutting-edge laboratory spaces, including the Human Ingestive Behaviour (Kissileff) Laboratory. A purpose built suite of rooms designed for the experimental study of human ingestive behaviour, it is one of the largest dedicated facilities of its kind in the UK. Our outstanding facililities also include an EEG Laboratory, an Eye-Tracker Facility, and a Hydra Immersive Simulation System.
