The School’s research extends beyond the Chemistry Building, with staff integral to the work of three Research Institutes across the campus and in West Cumbria.

 

Dalton Cumbrian Facility (DCF)

Research in radiation chemistry is carried out in state-of-the-art laboratories in West Cumbria, developing the skills to tackle issues such as radioactive waste management. Together with the Centre for Radiochemical Research, the Cumbrian Facility is part of the Dalton Nuclear Institute.

Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB)

 

Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB)

Research at the interface between chemistry and biology is carried out in the MIB, which brings together researchers from a range of disciplines addressing challenges in industrial biotechnology, healthcare and energy.

Photon Science Institute

 

Photon Science Institute (PSI)

Research into the chemistry of photon interactions with matter is carried out in the PSI.  The School runs the EPSRC National Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) Facility and Service which is also housed here, supporting researchers across the country.

The School is also home to the following research centres:

 

EPSRC National Facility and Service for Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) Spectroscopy

The EPSRC National Facility and Service for EPR Spectroscopy is now located in the Photon Science Institute. This prestigious contract has been won by the School of Chemistry, together with partners at the Universities of Oxford and St Andrew's

 

Centre for Radiochemistry Research (CRR)

The Centre for Radiochemistry Research (CRR) forms a national focus for radiochemistry research. The centre's research activities link closely to many aspects of the nuclear industry, from process chemistry to decommissioning, waste management and environmental impact.

 

Centre for Nanoporous Materials (CNM)

The CNM, established in 1995, originally as the UMIST Centre for Microporous Materials UCMM (then Centre for Microporous Materials, CMM, and now Centre for Nanoporous Materials, CNM, within The University of Manchester) is a joint initiative between the Schools of Chemistry and CEAS (Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science) with industry to create a Centre of Excellence in the field of nanoporous materials.

Centre for Chemical Intervention in Biology & Medicine (CCIBM)

 

Centre for Chemical Intervention in Biology & Medicine (CCIBM)

We have newly established the Centre for Health and Chemical Intervention in Biology and Medicine (CCIBM) in the School of Chemistry and have a Knowledge Transfer Fellow in place to conduct collaborative research.

Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry (KCMC)

 

Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry (KCMC)

The Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry is a centre of expertise that brings together leading edge academic research facilities, knowledge and expertise in applied materials chemistry at the universities of Bolton, Liverpool, Manchester and the molecular modelling capabilities of the Science and Technology Facilities Council at Daresbury.

Centre of Excellence for Biocatalysis, Biotransformations and Biocatalytic Manufacture (CoEBio3)

 

Centre of Excellence for Biocatalysis, Biotransformations and Biocatalytic Manufacture (CoEBio3)

The CoEBio3 is the UK's new organisation designed to provide a world-class scientific environment in which the necessary research and development can be carried out to create new biocatalyst-based processes to meet the changing needs of industry in the next 10-20 years.

Michael Barber Centre for Mass Spectrometry (MBCMS)

 

Michael Barber Centre for Mass Spectrometry (MBCMS)

The interests and expertise of the Centre are in the development of mass spectrometry and related analytical techniques, and their application to problems of biological importance.

Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology (MCISB)

 

Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology (MCISB)

The Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology (MCISB) is funded by the BBSRC and EPSRC to pioneer the development of new experimental and computational technologies in Systems Biology, and their exploitation. This Centre spans the Schools of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Analytical Sciences, Computing Sciences, Mathematics, and the Faculty of Life Sciences.

Organic Materials Innovation Centre (OMIC)

 

Organic Materials Innovation Centre (OMIC)

A UK government supported University Innovation Centre for the speciality organic materials and polymer industries. OMIC facilitates knowledge transfer in organic materials from Universities in the northwest to businesses in the UK, helping businesses to innovate and grow.
