What is CELLS?

The Controlled Environmant Laboratory for Life Sciences (CELLS) Research Group was established in 2010 as a dedicated research group within the Department of Applied Sciences at the Limerick Institute of Technology. CELLS builds upon a previously established link with the Space Life Science Laboratory at NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre, Florida, with its research efforts focus on utilising state-of-the-art environmental growth chambers for plant growth and development with potential applications in the food and nutraceutical industries.
