Applications for the 4 year MRes/PhD Programme in Modelling Biological Complexity for Autumn 2013 entry are now CLOSED to new applicants.
Application for 2014 entry will reopen in Autumn 2013. Date to be confirmed.
CoMPLEX is UCL's centre for interdisciplinary science, bringing life and medical scientists together with mathematicians, physical scientists, computer scientists, and engineers to tackle the challenges arising from complexity in biology and medicine.
MRes/PhD Modelling Biological Complexity
In this integrated programme, the first year consists of an MRes during which students are trained in biological complexity, mathematical modelling of biological systems, and advanced experimental techniques. After successful completion of the MRes students typically continue for a three-year period of research leading to a PhD.
For full details on the MRes year, please visit the MRes course page.
If you would like to find out more information about the course, please download our pdf document:
Our areas of interest include:
- Biomolecular Mechanisms
Imaging, optical and scanning probe approaches to nanoscale bioscience
- Integration of Cellular Function
Immunology and computational approaches to genomic, metabolomic and proteomic data
- Physiological and Neural Systems
Systems Biology of physiological systems, biophysics of vascular fluid mechanics, hearing and ion channels, neuroscience of vision and hearing
- Evolution and Dynamics of Populations
Molecular evolution, evolutionary genomics and proteomics, regulation of gene networks, evolution and ecology of populations
- Cardiovascular Research
Systems biology and networks, advanced imaging & computational analysis, chemical biology
- Cancer Biology
Cancer Research UK supported projects in cancer biology
- Systems biology
A combination of theory and experiment to study the mechanisms underlying complex biological processes
During the programme all students receive training in transferable skills. Students progress after the first year MRes onto an interdisciplinary PhD project chosen from a wide range of topics with supervisors from both the life sciences and the mathematical/physical sciences. All CoMPLEX students are also enrolled in the UCL Graduate School and are eligible to receive further training in scientific, transferable or business skills.
