LabC is an independent organisation formed at the meeting point of Art and Bioscience. We are a platform for mutual discovery that is primarily involved with the research and production of Art. In this process we develop innovative ways of disseminating ideas to a wider public. We provide support for artists and scientists to gain knowledge and access to one each others resources and audiences. With a wide network of artists, scientists and cultural leaders we provide ethical guidance for artwork or creative public engagement that falls outside of the remit of institutional clinical research ethics remits. North West England is a leader in culture-led regeneration and is home to the largest national grouping of arts, health and bioscience related disciplines and people in the UK. LabC are based in Liverpool, Lancaster London with a network of national partners.

LabC has developed from the ground up, Its co-founders, Gina Czarnecki and Rod Dillon with Sam Meech developed ideas for LabC through independent art projects that have been partially funded by the Wellcome Trust and Arts Council England NW. Rod has now assisted numerous artists in the realisation of ideas and also procedural aspects of materials and methods and started personal performance works with ‘Bednets not bombs” at the Bluecoat in 2010. Concurrently Gina made the Wasted works with Professor Sara Rankin from imperial College which led to the evolution of an independent ethics advisory panel from the challenges faced for artists working with human and other living matter.
