The above is the view, due west from the Mile End campus, photographed by Jon (2012). In the past few years there have been many more additions to our great London skyline - I must make a new comparison!
The tall buildings, roughly 2000 metres distant, from left to right, are:
The Shard (above London Bridge station).
The Royal London Hospital, in blue, with helipad (closer at 800 m).
30, St Mary Axe (commonly called 'The Gherkin').
Tower 42, right next door to the newer Heron Tower.
The flowers (
Nicotiana tabacum, grown by Anna Yeates), inside the greenhouse, are just obscuring the apartment block of Withy House on Globe Road.

The labs, computing and culturing equipment are based in the Joseph Priestley building. The microscopy instrumentation is housed within
The NanoVision Centre (ground floor of the Francis Bancroft building (see below maps)). A suite of wet lab equipment is maintained: SDS-PAGE, Western blotting, FPLC, bench top centrifuge, pH meters, autoclave, light microscope, readily shared with permission (contact me). Within the Department of Chemistry, and the over-arching School of Biological and Chemical Sciences, there are ultracentrifuges and a wide range of spectroscopy equipment. A secure air-conditioned room, consisting of an off-line Linux cluster, including GP-GPU is administered by the School and upgraded regularly, running our own personalised coding/scripts, and we trial/use most of the widely available 3DEM open-source, scripts.

Here is the view in Google Earth, looking roughly from west to east, at a height of 1.44 km. The 2012
Olympic park is a few kilometres behind us.

The campus is situated 5 minutes walk westwards from Mile End tube station; we are located in the Joseph Priestley building (south of the 'Curve' building in brown, at centre, above). The NanoVision microscopy centre is located on the ground floor of the Francis Bancroft building next door. The green buildings to the north east is QMUL’s Sir Christopher France House (accommodation for visiting guests).
