The Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre (MWAC) sees the co-location of major research instrumentation in the University in a single, purpose built, high-grade facility. The Centre houses the most important major instruments used in the Faculties of Science, Medicine and Engineering for the study of the structure and composition of biological, chemical and physical materials and will also include preparation laboratories, smaller instruments and computing facilities. In addition, it provides the technical/professional support for the instruments.
The Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre (MWAC) consolidates the management of resources to minimise unnecessary duplication, as well as providing the appropriate infrastructure to support the instruments and a world-class research environment within which the instrumentation can operate to specification.
The Board oversees the operations of the Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre (MWAC) and its role is to:
Reference Advisory Groups provide strategic advice to each of the Units and Facilities.
