The Technical Support Team and research facilities

The Technical Support Team provides assistance to the department's research groups. We have a range of multi-disciplinary research experience, from engineering to physical and biological sciences. Core research infrastructure and resources are supported by our team with the lab managers providing distinct support and expertise in physical sciences (Simon Butler) and biotechnology (Hassan Rahmoune). The lab managers can be contacted using the group email address

The team is responsible for the management of core departmental facilities. These facilities are available to all researchers in our department and can be accessed by other members of the University or external users through consultation with our lab managers.
