We are


The KAUST Core Labs are a system of centrally governed, multi-disciplinary laboratories. Each lab is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and is supported by expertly skilled staff, many with post-graduate qualifications and all proficient in their specific fields. 

Our system of centralized governance, the One Lab Model, is structured to allow research progress seamlessly across disciplines. Pivotal to this level of access is our support system. Our staff are always on hand to inform and advice. We offer a variety of services tailored to meet every eventuality.
