External Users


We can accept projects from users external to the University of Leeds dependent on facility staff time and available resources. To discuss using our facility please fill in a submission form, available here, or contact the Protein Production Facility Manager by viewing our contacts page.

We cannot take on all project requests and so a scientific justification is a requirement to allow us to choose appropriate projects.

Please be aware of our conditions of service before using the facility. Submission of a project request form signifies agreement with this statement:

All work that is supported in some way by the Protein Production Facility should be acknowledged in all publications that arise. For routine technical assistance we ask you to add "We are grateful to the University of Leeds Protein Production Facility" to your Acknowledgements section. In the majority of cases we will have input in your project beyond routine. For work where we have had intellectual input into the project design, acquired and/or interpreted data beyond routine practices or written portions of manuscripts, normal co-authorship guidelines should apply and each member of the Protein Production Facility that has contributed significantly should be included as a co-author.
