Quantitative Imaging and Nanobiophysics

The Quantitative Imaging and Nanobiophysics Group Our research is focused on the development of experimental technology to study biological processes that fall outside of the resolving power of conventional cell biology studies. We specially focus on applications to super-resolution (SR) microscopy. SR is non-trivial and requires a multidisciplinary approach for its development and application. Additionally, a novel realm of analytical and modelling tools needs to be established to resolve the new level of information retrieved from cellular structure and behaviour at the nanoscale. Together with collaborators we have tackled some of these challenges, developing fundamental technologies...

4 Year PhD Programme at LMCB

Applications are invited for our MRC-funded four year PhD Programme in
Molecular Cell Biology. The closing date for applications is the 4th Jan

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.

Life at UCL

UCL enjoys a beautiful location at the heart of London. Studying and working at UCL will provide you with the opportunity to explore the best cultural and social events that makes London one of the most vibrant and multicultural cities in the world.
