CoMPLEX is UCL's lead organisation for supporting research at the life sciences interface. CoMPLEX has promoted many new collaborations between scientist drawn from mathematical, physical, engineering and computational disciplines with members of the large biomedical and life science community at UCL. In addition, CoMPLEX's well established interdisciplinary PhD programme is training a new generation of high quality researchers to work at the life science interface.

Research Topics

Topics for PhD and further research projects supported by CoMPLEX include:

  • Mathematical modelling of molecular evolution, evolutionary genomics, gene and metabolic networks, cancer biology and immunology.
  • Bio and neuro informatics.
  • Biophysics of vascular fluid mechanics, hearing and ion channels.
  • Imaging, optical and scanning probe approaches to nanoscale bioscience.
  • Mathematical and Physical Science approaches to cardiovascular biomedicine.
