The diversity of the science undertaken on the STFC facilities and programmes spans many areas that are important both to the citizen's quality of life and the desire to understand how our world and universe work.
The range of science is wide: from the study of the fundamental physics of elementary particles to taking forward our knowledge and monitoring of medical conditions such as arthritis, surfactant development on the lungs of premature babies, and the ongoing desire to understand protein structures and functionality.
Alongside these experiments might be investigations into the new thin film magnets for data storage, identification of archaeological specimens, stress analysis of aircraft wings and much more, including fundamental scientific explorations.
