CLF Industry Day 2018

Location: Research Complex at Harwell, Harwell Campus, Oxfordshire

Date: 1st November 2018

Following on from the success of the High Power Lasers Industry Day, the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) are delighted to host a second Industry day with a focus on Pharma, Medicine & Life Science at the Central Laser Facility (CLF).

This event will showcase the state-of-the-art technology and techniques in spectroscopy and microscopy available for industrial access housed within the CLF. The CLF is a national laboratory leading the way in laser research to investigate a broad range of science areas including; complex biological systems, the structure and function of materials and chemical reactions.

The event aims to highlight how lasers and advanced microscopes can be used to analyse and understand samples and products from the pharmaceutical, medicine and life science sectors in new, insightful ways. Our dynamic and flexible techniques, the expert knowledge of our staff and far reaching capabilities are a perfect match to any industrial scientist or R&D department looking for the next generation of product or sample analysis.

Laser-based imaging techniques are used across the CLF for applications spanning life science and medicine. The microscopy facility allows us to understand the mechanisms of chemical and biological synthesis and make incredibly precise measurements of biological samples. The microscopes are able to detect even single molecules fluorescing and can image molecular processes within cells letting us see products, drugs, formulations and processes in new ways and even closer detail.

The CLF already has industrial collaborations where for example we are using our ability to observe structural changes of proteins for new product development in biomedical and pharmaceutical applications and providing insights into chemical speciation during reactions for making more efficient catalytic products. 

The CLF also collaborates with a number of pharmaceutical companies to understand drug receptors and activation pathways to assist in drug discovery and design, delving into the fundamental understanding of biochemical reactions.

Join us to discuss your product and /or process challenges and learn how you can access and benefit from our facilities.

We are offering a limited number of 'Expert Panel' sessions for companies keen to learn more about how the CLF techniques can be used to solve specific business critical or proprietary industrial challenges. These private mini sessions, fully protected by non-disclosure agreements, will provide companies with the opportunity to discuss current challenges with a select panel of our scientific staff.
