We have finally moved in to our new Bio Design lab in the Devonshire building at Newcastle University. So far our work has been spread across Labs at the Centre of Bacteria Cell Biology (at Newcastle University), Northumbria University and Civil Engineering as well as the workshops in Architecture at Newcastle University. The lab has been conceived to integrate this work – becoming a cross between a microbiology lab, a materials testing lab and design workshop. We are currently installing new equipment which includes two 3D printers, a 2 3D printers, a robot arm and microscopes. Luis is already beginning to use the 3D printers to build some bespoke lab equipment and we expect to be fully functioning by January 2018.
