John B. Thornes Laboratory


The John B Thornes Laboratory is a multifaceted, million-pound teaching and research facility opened on the Strand Campus in 2010.

Hosting the Environmental Dynamics (ED) Research Domain group, the JBTLab consists of a central teaching and research zone complimented by auxiliary processing and analytical labs.

Together, they form an interdisciplinary research space spanning analytical chemistry, ecology, particle analysis, spectroscopy and electronic engineering, enabling researchers and students to explore the physical, chemical, biological and electronic interface in their work.


The JBTLab's reach extends into the local environment and beyond through the deployment of innovative remote sensing devices and a broad array of state-of-the-art field equipment and UAVs.

The JBTMakerspace 

The newly refurbished JBTMakerspace, in collaboration with King's Department of Informatics and Robotics' WLab, gives students access to both fused filament fabrication (FFF) and stereolithographic (SLA) 3D printing, in addition to PCB fabrication and CNC milling technologies for unprecedented freedom over their designs.
