There are two stations in Warrington, Warrington Bank Quay and Warrington Central, which together provide many inter-city train connections . (Railway Network Map)

Taxi services from these train stations cost ~ £10. A taxi rank is located just outside of the main entrance to either Bank Quay or Central railway stations.

By Airplane

Regional airports are the Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Manchester International Airport . Both are ~30-40 mins by car from the laboratory. Taxi and train services (to Warrington Central) are also available.

If you are travelling to any of the London airports the easiest way to commute is to take the train to Warrington Bank Quay from London Euston. To get to Euston station you may use the London Underground or express trains to Central London (i.e. Paddington/ Victoria train stations from Heathrow Gatwick airports respectively).
