Leeds Institute of Biomedical & Clinical Sciences occupies state of the art research facilities based predominantly at the St Jamess University hospital site. Research is carried out in 3000 m2 of prime laboratory space on levels 8 & 9 of the Wellcome Trust Brenner Building and in the adjoining Clinical Sciences Building. The Medical Microbiology group runs a satellite facility in the Old Medical School at the Leeds General Infirmary.
The main facilities infrastructure is managed by St Jamess Campus Infrastructure and Facilities (SCIF) as several Institutes in the School of Medicine share buildings and equipment at this site. The research facilities in the School of Medicine are shown here. Within LIBACS there are strong links with Next Generation Sequencing, a partnership between the University of Leeds & the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, the Biomedical Health Research Centre Bioscreening Technology Group and the Confocal Microscopy facility.
Our academics are involved in applying their world leading research to deliver bespoke services to suit individual business requirements and impact on healthcare and medicine. Currently expert consultancy in the area of biomedical translational research includes the use of a Clostridium difficile research model culture system to evaluate the efficacy of novel drug regimens.
