Science Facilities


Advanced Structural Biology for Re-emerging Infectious Diseases supports research into the structural analysis of proteins and protein-protein interactions through a group of shared facilities and equipment.





Biofactorial FacilityBiofactorial High-Throughput Biology Facility           
Biofactorial is equipped with high-throughput automation infrastructure, including for liquid handling and dispensing, plate reading, cell plating, colony picking, and library preparation for sequencing, and additionally provides access to metagenomic and chemical compound libraries for screening.




LSI Imaging FacilityLSI IMAGING           
Life Sciences Institute Imaging provides access to state-of-the-art equipment for super resolution and confocal microscopy, high content imaging, live cell imaging, and analysis software. Users benefit from expert training and support on all instrumentation.





FINDER FINDER           
The Facility for Infectious Disease and Epidemic Research is a 6,700-sq-ft containment level 3 facility offering self-contained suites for microbiology, proteomics, imaging, flow cytometry, and freezer storage, to support research in bacterial and viral infectious diseases, and development of vaccines and therapeutics for risk group 3 pathogens.




High Resolution Macromolecular Cryo-Electron Microscopy provides researchers with resources for high-resolution cryo-electron microscopy, including Talos, Glacios, and Krios microscopes, and equipment for sample preparation.





Centre for Diseaes Modelling is part of the UBC Animal Care and Use Program (ACUP), a University-wide program and covers all UBC persons who work with animals in research and teaching.
