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 have three laboratories available for hire during the day. The ISMB Biophysics and X-Ray facilities are also available for academic or commercial use via Clustermarket.
