Choosing ESSEXLab allows you to access an ever-growing database of over 2500 participants, where you can filter participants by the characteristics you need for your research, such as gender, race or age. Whilst we specialise in and encourage experimental research, we also welcome other study designs.
Depending on how much support you need, our experienced laboratory team can help you design and run an experiment, or can leave you to work independently. Our full-time Laboratory Manager Dr Patrick Lown will also be on hand to support you.
“I'm very happy with my overall experience at ESSEXLab. Before the experiment, Patrick Lown, who is very professional and efficient, facilitated greatly the preparation. During the experiment, I had the chance to be assisted by competent and helpful lab assistants. If the experiment went so smoothly, it is because of them."
“ESSEXLab has a pool of participants, which helps an experiment recruit a sufficient number for the study. The facility is also very well maintained. The lab assistants are very helpful, so much so that a researcher doesn't have to pay attention to all the details when conducting the study.”
"I was fortunate enough to be granted funding to travel from California to the UK to use the ESSEXLab. Using a lab in another country allowed me to gather two samples and gain a more nuanced understanding of my subject area."
Not a problem. ESSEXLab welcomes researchers from both inside and outside of the University. Whether you are an individual researcher or part of a large organisation or business, ESSEXLab can help you to conduct a successful study using world class facilities.
