Sinclair Building

Based at the Headington Campus, one mile East of Oxford City Centre, the Department of Biological and Medical Sciences offers a research-led, dynamic and supportive environment in which to study. Here you’ll have access to excellent facilities, including a range of well-equipped laboratories, an advanced bioimaging suite and an extensive collection of online learning resources.

As part of our commitment to providing an excellent experience for students, we have refurbished the Sinclair Building. We now have a modern 100-seat teaching lab, student orientated spaces, academic offices, and further teaching and research areas.

The new large lab allows for several teaching sessions to take place simultaneously, providing opportunities for cross-discipline working; placing you at the centre of outstanding scientific research and development.

Sinclair Annex

Our new facilities also include the Sinclair Annex, home to our Oxford Brookes Centre for Bioimaging. The Annex houses specialist microscopes, equipment including access to state-of-the-art Zeiss high resolution 3-D scanning electron microscope funded by the BBSRC, and research labs. The Annex offers a brand-new space in which research teams are better able to collaborate and continue doing world leading science.
