Medical Molecular Biology Unit
Our mission is to apply the full range of molecular biology techniques to problems of medical importance, focusing particularly on diseases of the nervous system and the cardiovascular system. These studies are aimed at the improved understanding, diagnosis and ultimate therapy of human disease.
The Unit was founded at University College London's Windeyer Building in 1988, with the dual aim of pursuing high quality medical research and assisting clinical colleagues to apply molecular biology to their disease area. In 1999, following the appointment of The Unit Head (Professor D S Latchman) as Dean and Professor of Human Genetics at the Institute of Child Health (ICH), The Unit moved to ICH where it benefits from strong interactions with a number of other Units at the Institute. Currently The Unit has 18 research staff and 14 PhD students.
