The building formerly known as the MARIARC (Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Analysis Research Centre) is changing its name to the Research Technology Building.
The building houses the University’s MRI facility, which relaunched last summer as LiMRIC (Liverpool Magnetic Resonance Imaging Centre), following the installation of a new £1.6m research grade MRI scanner. In more recent years, the building has also become home to the Cell Sorting Facility and the newly-established Liverpool University Biobank, all of which are Shared Research Facilities in the HLS Technology Directorate.
Speaking recently about the renaming, Professor Malcolm Jackson, APVC for Research & Impact in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences (HLS) and Academic Lead for the Technology Directorate, said “The MARIARC name was well-known but no longer reflects the broad range of research infrastructure within the building. The Research Technology Building better encompasses the various Shared Research Facilities that are now housed there, all of which support a diverse range of research from across the Faculty.”
You can find out more about the activity of each of the facilities in the Research Technology Building on the Technology Directorate website.
