The Treeck Lab is located in the Francis Crick Institute in central London, UK. The Francis Crick Institute is a unique state-of-the-art biomedical research institute formed from a collaboration between the UK Medical Research Council, Cancer Research UK, the Wellcome Trust, University College London, Imperial College London and King's College London. The aim of the institute is "discovery without boundaries": to discover the biology underlying human health, and improve the treatment, diagnosis and prevention of human disease.
As part of the institute, the lab has access to several world-leading core scientific facilities, in addition to facilities in the three partner research universities. In particular, our recent work has made extensive use of the Proteomics, Advanced Sequencing, High-Thoughput Screening, Bioinformatics, and Electron Microscopy Scientific Technology Platforms.
In addition to the core technology platforms, our lab has dedicated ACDP Containment Level 2 and 3 facilities for Toxoplasma and Plasmodium culture respectively, which include Containment 2/3 fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS) and live fluorescence microscopy capabilities.
