Research in Cell Biology is directed towards an understanding of the molecular mechanisms that underpin genomic and cellular structure and function.
Situated in the Rutherford-Swann-Waddington complex as well as the Roger Land Building at King’s Buildings, provides a state-of-the-art environment for cell and molecular biology.
A number of research centres are incorporated. The Centre for Chemical and Translational Biology provides world class facilities for protein production and biophysical characterisation. The Centre for Synthetic and Systems Biology (SynthSys) is a unique interdisciplinary environment and is currently developing genetic and molecular tools for re-designing biochemical systems.
The funders of research being carried out within the these research areas include BBSRC, CR-UK, European Commission, Gates Foundation, Mayo Foundation, MRC, Royal Society and Wellcome Trust.
We work closely with members of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology with whom we have common research interests and collaborative projects.
