Welcome to the UCL Research Department of Cell and Developmental Biology


The Research Department of Cell and Developmental Biology is one of the largest departments at UCL. It is part of the Division of Biosciences in the Faculty of Life Sciences (FLS) and brings together excellent, internationally competitive cell, developmental and evolutionary biologists to provide coherence of research strategy in the exciting fields of Life Science.

YEN Banner

The Young Embryologist Network was set up in 2008 by PhD students in the UCL Research Department of Cell & Developmental Biology under the guiding hand of Dr Yoshiyuki Yamamoto. The purpose of the network came from a desire to improve communication in the research environment for PhD and Post-Doc embryologists.
