Agilent Technologies Inc. (Santa Clara, California, USA) and Imperial College London have signed a strategic scientific collaboration agreement that will see a broad range of Agilent instruments installed in a sponsored measurement suite to be housed within Imperial’s Molecular Sciences Research Hub.

“Imperial College London plays a very important role in advancing a deeper understanding of the world through their lab instruction and research,” said Mike McMullen, Agilent President, and CEO. “We recognize the important contributions made by university scientific research to solve real-life challenges, from finding new ways to fight cancer, to ensuring the purity of food, to solving major environmental issues. It is an honour for Agilent to support Imperial in building an advanced scientific measurement and analytical laboratory on their new White City Campus. We value our partnership and look forward to taking this important step together,” he added.

Tony Cass, Professor of Chemical Biology in the Department of Chemistry and Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Imperial, has been appointed Director of the Agilent Measurement Suite.
