Research Complex at Harwell (RCaH)

The Research Complex at Harwell (RCaH) is an exciting joint venture between the MRC, BBSRC, STFC, EPSRC, NERC and Diamond Light Source.

It is located on the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) site on the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, adjacent to Diamond, the new third generation Synchrotron Radiation source.

It is also close to other leading facilities on the campus: the ISIS neutron source, Central Laser Facility, Membrane Protein Laboratory, MRC Mammalian Genetics Unit and Mary Lyon Centre, and a Biological Solid State NMR Facility.

RCaH is open, on a competitive basis, to research teams from UK universities, as well as to Diamond and RAL staff.

The MRC is calling for proposals through its standard grant and fellowship schemes for researchers wishing to occupy space within the research complex.

Applicants wishing to make use of the research complex should visit the RCaH website and contact the Research Director, Professor Peter Lee.
