The Rosalind Franklin Building

Rosalind Franklin building

Renowned scientist and television presenter Professor Robert Winston officially opened the new multi-million pound science facility in October 2012.

Supporting chemistry and bioscience teaching and research for the School of Science and Technology, the building was named after the late British biophysicist and X-ray crystallographer Rosalind Franklin and features high-specification laboratories, including a large multi-use lab which allows up to 200 students to work simultaneously. 

A range of leading research by university experts is also housed in the new facility, including the latest internationally-recognised 3D security scanning and vision systems work and research into nanomedicine - the medical application of nanotechnology.

The Rosalind Franklin building is based on Clifton campus.
