A new imaging centre for biology is to be built at Diamond following the award of a £15.6 million grant from the Wellcome Trust, the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC).
Diamond is delighted to be home to this new facility through the new grant awarded by the Wellcome Trust in collaboration with BBSRC and MRC. This new investment will provide a unique approach which will integrate the activities of the synchrotron and the capabilities of electron microscopy. It will create a new synergy between the scientific techniques on offer. It is hoped that through this major advances in visualising of sub cellular mechanisms will be made.”
Prof Dave Stuart, Life Science Director at Diamond Light Source, MRC Professor of Structural Biology at the Department of Medicine University of Oxford, and Director of the European Instruct project“
Dr Michael Dunn, Head of Genetic and Molecular Sciences at the Wellcome Trust, said: "We are pleased to be involved in this exciting venture, together with MRC and BBSRC, which will enable UK research to remain at the cutting edge of structural biology."
Diamond Light Source is the UK's national synchrotron science facility, located at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus in Oxfordshire.
