The MPL is a user facility open to applications from any research group interested in learning more about methods associated with membrane protein strucutral biology. The laboratory operates in a similar way to a synchrotron beamline, with users visiting for periods of a few days up to several months, depending on the project. Users can also make repeat visits to the MPL, depending on what their project requires.
Applications are reviewed by the MPL Scientific Advisory Board.
How to apply:
There are two routes through which to make an application. Either way we recommend that you contact Dr Andrew Quigley in advance to discuss your proposed projects requirments.
The MPL is not currently able to cover the cost of users travel and accommodation or full consumables costs and we will ask for a contribution towards expensive consumables.
Direct to the MPL
Through the Instruct-ERIC Program
Please follow the link below to the instruct-ERIC website. You will find the MPL under the sample preparation service where we offer suport for protein production and crystallisation.
The MPL welcomes collaboration with Industrial partners.
If the proposed project is academic in nature, with results published within a reasonable timeframe, then visits can be arraged through an academic collaboration and would be treated in a similar way to an academic proposal.
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
