    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 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 135 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.
