Research Facilities

Molecular Biophysics

The aim of the UCL/Birkbeck ISMB Biophysics Centre is to offer biophysical instrumentation and expertise to scientists based in London or beyond. A variety of equipment is available for equilibrium and kinetic studies of proteins, nucleic acids, small molecules and their interactions.  Please refer to our website for detailed information on the techniques and on the running of the Centre and contact us if you have any queries.
