The technique provides valuable information used to direct research projects throughout the School, where groups use X-ray crystallography to link protein structure with function and rational drug design.

The School also has block access to the Synchrotron Radiation sources at Diamond (Didcot, UK) and ESRF (Grenoble, France) in collaboration with the University of St Andrews.

The X-ray crystallography Facility is funded by the Wellcome Trust.
