Director's Message

Dr. Justin Lee Mynar (2014 - Present)


Welcome to the KAUST Core Labs. ​ ​

The purpose of the Core Labs is to act as a platform to support the ambitions of the University. We provide state-of-the-art facilities, training, and services in a user-facility environment that enables our resea​rchers to work in a safe and efficient manner. By sharin​g res​ources across the University, we are able to diversify our instrumentation, thus widening applications and promoting an environment for multidisciplinary research.

As with all​ great facilities, it is the people that bring true and everlasting impact. It gives me great pride to lead a team of over 200 staff, representing more than 33 countries around the world. Our facilities are impressive, but it is the people who run those facilities that foster a truly collaborative environment of excellence and innovation.​

I invite you to take a look around the website to learn more about our state-of-the-art facilities and to discover another reason why KAUST is a scientific destination.
