Facility title Overview
Biochemistry and molecular biology The Biochemistry and molecular biology facilities at the School of Dentistry feature state of the art technologies.
Biomaterials and tissue engineering facilities The School’s biomaterials and tissue engineering facilities are equipped with some of the latest equipment to enable cutting edge research
Clinical Imaging Facilities Our clinical imaging facilities include a clinical MRI centre (Philips 1.5T and 3T) for cardiovascular imaging research, an Advanced Imaging Centre (Siemens Prisma 3T) that supports developmental MRI and access to NHS based imaging equipment including CT, echocardiography and PET/CT.
Digital dentistry facility The School has first-rate facilities for digital workflows, haptics, machine learning and artificial intelligence in dentistry.
Experimental and Preclinical Imaging Centre (ePIC) This state-of-the-art preclinical imaging centre provides the latest generation of multi-modality imaging platforms, including a 7 Tesla MR system, a PET/SPECT/CT scanner, µCT and optical imaging all from the same vendor - Bruker, Germany alongside high frequency ultrasound from FujiFilm Visualsonics.
Imaging facilities The world-class imaging facilities at the School of Dentistry feature the latest in imaging technology.
Investigating health, wellbeing and social processes Our Health and Social Psychology Lab facilities allow us to conduct world leading experimental, quantitative and qualitative research in health and social psychology.
Investigating human nutrition The Human Appetite Research Unit features a range of world-leading facilities and resources which enable the innovative research work of its groups – Appetite Control and Energy Balance Group, Nutrition and Behaviour Group and Infant Feeding Group.
Investigating neural function The School houses several labs devoted to understanding neural correlates of behaviour in both typical and patient populations. There are two EEG systems and an fNIRS system for recording brain activity, in addition to TMS and tACS systems for modulating brain function in order to determine the direct effects on behaviour. Research topics include; the ageing brain, understanding pain processing, visual perception and the effects of nutrition on brain function.
Investigating responses Our Sensorimotor Laboratory facilities include state of the art research equipment and resources designed to record high-resolution motor responses to a range of motor, cognitive and sensory tasks.
Investigating virtual worlds Several groups use virtual reality in order to investigate a diverse range of topics, such as motor control, pain processing and driving behaviours. The School houses a driving lab, a whole room walking virtual reality system, as well as multiple mobile systems.
Microbiology facilities The School of Dentistry's Microbiology facilities are equipped with the latest materials and resources to enable cutting edge research.
Next Generation Sequencing Facility The NGS facility is owned and run by the University of Leeds. We aim to provide a flexible sequencing service in which cutting edge methodologies can be rapidly developed and provided, as a service to both internal and external users.
Psychology general research facilities The School of Psychology has a range of facilities and resources available for undertaking research.
Skeletal tissues research bank The skeletal tissues research bank is a vital resource which enhances research undertaken across the faculty.
Translational and Clinical Research (DenTCRU) Our range of clinical facilities within the School of Dentistry allow us insight into a array of research areas.
University of Leeds Faculty of Medicine and Health Flow Cyometry and Imaging Facility Our core facility aims to resource and deliver advanced light based cytometric equipment and cell purification technologies along with expert research support and training in these fields to expand the understanding of dynamic cellular functions both in vito and in vivo in a clinical setting.
