Labs and research facilities

Our world-leading Department of Biological Sciences offers state-of-the-art facilities for research in crystallography, molecular biology and spectroscopy. 

Research in the Department is shaped by our membership of the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology (ISMB), a joint research institute between Birkbeck and University College London (UCL). We integrate chemical and physical sciences to investigate biological systems, in particular, the molecular basis of protein function. This will increase our understanding of human diseases and how best to combat them. 

Teaching Laboratory and Facilities hire

We take regular bookings of our three teaching laboratories during the day. We are currently heavily booked for 2020, but can possibly accept some ad hoc day requests. Please note we accept bookings for teaching purposes only. The ISMB Biophysics and X-Ray facilities are also available for academic or commercial use via Clustermarket.
