Study Science in the United Kingdom

Science 'superlab' opens at London Met United Kingdom


This first-class teaching and research facility features a 'superlab' with 280 workstations sharing both traditional and digital technology. This is the first university laboratory in the world to allow 280 students to work independently on different experiments, and the largest of its kind in Europe.



In addition, the impressive 8, 000m2 building houses an international standard basketball court set within a multipurpose gymnasium; specialist laboratories for tissue culture research and microbiology; a nuclear-magnetic resonance room;

and a Category 3 laboratory suite for research on airborne or transferable viruses.

The Science centre also features unique facilities for the study of sports therapy, nutritional physiology and food technology including rehabilitation and physiotherapy rooms, phlebotomy labs, a cybex room (where muscle power can be measured), a body pod (which measures body fat) and a motor room (where movement can be observed).


London Met is the largest single university in London and offers a wide range of science courses at both undergraduate and post graduate levels. Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive Brian Roper says: 'London Met has chosen to make a substantial investment in science at a time when many other institutions are withdrawing from this important area of study. A decline in the study of science would have serious implications for United Kingdom's economic future and we are working to combat this.'
Research is crucial to the culture of intellectual inquiry, it underpins our consultancy work and adds to the quality of our teaching. London Met is home to two international science research institutes, the Institute of Brain Chemistry and Human Nutrition, and the Institute for Health Research and Policy. Our research teams are currently working on a number of exciting projects which include research into nutrition and obesity in children; an HIV vaccine; and an investigation into dietary iron and liver disease.




Professor Chris Branford-White, Director of the Institute of Health and Research Policy (IHRP) says: 'This state-of-the-art facility will further strengthen the teaching and research of science at London Met. In particular, the new building provides excellent Category 3 laboratory facilities for IHRP staff to develop research on airborne and transferable viruses.'

The building, by architects Pascall & Watson, was designed with an environmental strategy that minimises energy consumption, maximises energy efficiency and incorporates the provision of other green measures such as waste recycling. The design is on target to be accredited an excellent rating under the BREEAM (building research establishment environmental assessment method) system - making London Met one of the first educational laboratories in the United Kingdom to achieve this rating.
