The £250m machine is designed to help scientists peer in more detail than ever before at the fine structure of cells. Most of the funding for the machine has come from the government while the research charity the Wellcome Trust is providing the rest. Josep Sulé-Suso, a cancer doctor at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, plans to use Diamond to study the way lung cancer cells react to drugs. "It has huge potential" he said.
