Regulation of membrane trafficking and organelle dynamics

Research Overview The transmission of signals between cells and tissues is fundamental for normal cell growth and development. Only recently have we begun to appreciate the significance of information transfer between intracellular organelles. Eukaryotic cells are divided into distinct membrane-bound organelles with unique identities and specialized metabolic functions. Communication between organelles must take place to regulate the size, shape, and composition of individual organelles, as well as to coordinate transport between organelles. Research in our laboratory focuses on the regulatory networks that facilitate inter-organelle signaling and membrane trafficking between organelles....

About Us

The Medical Research Council Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology (MRC LMCB) opened in 1993 on the Gower Street Campus of UCL. In 2013 the MRC LMCB became an MRC-UCL University Unit and Division within the Faculty of Life Sciences under the Directorship of Professor Mark Marsh

Our Vision

The scientific aims of the LMCB & Cell Biology Unit is to provide a molecular understanding of cell behaviour through discovery-based research. Cell biology is one of the most exciting and important areas of biomedical research and is likely to remain so for the foreseeable future.
