The Centre for Biological Chemistry was established with a SRIF grant of 3.5M from HEFCE and opened in April 2006.

It is a communal area for all the groups involved in the original grant application and all the equipment contained within the area is for communal use by trained users. All users of the facilities must comply with the CBC Rules. Those that do not are subject to a fine and/or a ban from using the facilities.

The Centre has the following facilities:

  * -80 °C Freezers
  * Tissue Culture Room
  * Slow Fermentation Room - e.g. Streptomyces
