Reminder: Harwell Scientists to showcase research facilities

Harwell campus

The Harwell Science and Innovation Campus is just 20 miles away.

Representatives from the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, near Didcot, will come to the University on Tuesday 28 March to talk about how their facilities could help transform your research.

They will provide case studies in subject areas including Archaeology; Biomedical Sciences; Chemistry; Computer Science and Modelling; Environmental Sciences; Food Science; Meteorology/Modelling; and Pharmacy.

Based near Didcot, the Harwell campus is just 20 miles from Reading. Use of the facilities are free at the point of use for any academic whose research proposal is approved by a panel of international experts and who publishes their results in a peer-reviewed journal.

This event will showcase Diamond Light Source and some of the other facilities on site which can be applied to many disciplines, and are already used by many Reading researchers. 

The CEO of Diamond Light, Andrew Harrison, will give an overview of the facilities, the science they permit, and the breakthroughs achieved there. 

Reading and Harwell researchers will also speak about the work they have already done and their experience of working with the Harwell teams. 

Facilities showcased will include:

  • the UK’s national synchrotron science facility, Diamond Light Source
  • The Membrane Protein Lab for x-ray crystallography
  • the Electron Bio-Imaging Centre for single particle analysis and cryo-tomography (eBic)
  • the Electron Physical Science Imaging Centre (ePSIC) 
  • the Central Laser Facility
  • the ‘super microscopes’ in the ISIS suite of neutron and muon instruments

There will be plenty of opportunity for small group discussions and informal conversations with the team from Harwell and with Reading colleagues. 

The event will help you find out about how to apply to use the facilities and the support you can access.

Harwell Central Facilities Showcase Event 

Tuesday 28 March 2017, 11.00am - 4.00pm, Henley Business School

Please RSVP to the Research Dean’s Office researchdeansoffice@reading.ac.uk
