Whom We Benefit
LIMS aims to be a world leader in scientific research, and pushes the boundary of human knowledge by making its findings publicly available in the leading international scientific journals. LIMS hires and collaborates with the most accomplished scientists from inside and outside the UK.
Fundamental advances in our understanding of the universe, technology and life are essential to our nation's security, prosperity and health, as well as part of the British tradition of scientific discovery. LIMS is a national centre of excellence for researchers across the UK.
London is already a world hub in finance, business and art. LIMS contributes to the city's scientific pre-eminence by attracting the world's leading researchers, liaising with London's universities (Imperial, King's College, UCL and others), and generating local spin-off technologies.
LIMS also trains the next generation of scientists through its programme of postdoctoral research assistants and visiting graduate students, as well as summer undergraduate research fellowships (SURFs) and work experience for secondary school students.
