Our funding and unique position provides an unrivalled environment in which to undertake research. We have excellent facilities, particularly in the platform technologies that underpin modern scientific research. As a result, TSL has an outstanding record of publications in high profile journals. We therefore attract high calibre students, post-docs and senior researchers.

Standing in solidarity – Black Lives Matter

TSL stands alongside the University of East Anglia in recognising the need for all of us to do more to root out injustice and protect the rights of people to live with respect and dignity. 

TSL seeks to ensure that the laboratory environment is a supportive one in which individual respect is shown to all.  All members of staff and students, regardless of their race or ethnic background are supported and encouraged to realise their full potential.

TSL is a multi-cultural, international environment and discrimination on the grounds of race or religion is never tolerated in any form.  We continue to work with colleagues across the scientific sector to build on the work that has been done so far and to achieve more in the years ahead.
