The University of Reading's Knight Building has been the home of the microbiology department since it was opened by the Queen in 1992. It is a purpose-built research and teaching unit for microbiology and currently houses the microbiology research groups of the School of Biological Sciences. The building was renamed the Knight building in 2012 in honour of Professor BCJG Knight, the first Head of the Department, to celebrate 60 years of microbiology at Reading.
