Polarity and morphogenesis

Polarity & Morphogenesis Understanding how a functional organ can be produced from a small group of precursor cells remains an outstanding question in cell and developmental biology. The developing compound eye of Drosophila melanogaster has long been a model of choice for addressing this question by dissecting the cellular, genetic and molecular pathways that govern cell specification, differentiation, and multicellular patterning during organogenesis. Our work focuses on cell and tissue morphogenesis during fly retinal development, including the regulated changes in cell shape and cell packing that ultimately determine the shape and architecture of the compound eye. We are...

4 Year PhD Programme at LMCB

"Applications from EU nationals are invited for a place on the PhD Programme in Molecular Cell Biology at the LMCB. To apply please send a CV, Cover letter and contact details for two referees to j.pitcher@ucl.ac.uk."

"The interviews will take place in the week beginning 14 July 2014.”

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.
