The learning experience of UEL students enrolled on our courses is greatly enhanced due to our impressive laboratory facilities at Stratford Campus.
We were awarded a £1.2 million grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England to build a new high-tech super-lab. This was match-funded by the University, making an overall investment of £2.4 million.
These facilities have a major impact on the student experience at UEL and boost the University's reputation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) subjects. We have 10 teaching laboratories, 6 dedicated research laboratories and a large variety of specialist equipment suited to teaching and research in Bioscience. This includes: a high specification curved field MALDI TOF for proteomics research, flow cytometry equipment, HPLC-MS, GC-MS, PCR and real-time PCR, sequencing and equipment for ultrasound imaging, a new confocal microscope, a range of micro titre-plate readers including absorbance, scanning, fluorescence and bioluminescence machines.
All laboratories have been completely refurbished, the facilities are a major benefit to postgraduate researchers as well as undergraduates.
