Cell cycle regulated transcription and genome integrity

Cancer is a group of diseases in which cells continue to multiply in an unregulated manner. The main regulation of initiation of a new cell division cycle is imposed during a specific phase of the cell cycle called G1. Proteins that control exit from G1-phase, including those involved in regulating G1-S transcription, are often found mutated in human tumour cells, suggesting that inactivation of this pathway may be necessary for tumour development. Once a cell commits to a new cell division cycle the DNA structure checkpoints can restrict cell-cycle progression in response to the detection of abnormalities in the genetic material in order to repair the detected damage. When these...

4 Year PhD Programme at LMCB

Applications are invited for our MRC-funded four year PhD Programme in
Molecular Cell Biology. The closing date for applications is the 4th Jan
2015 and Interviews for short-listed candidates will be held on 24th Jan
2015. For details of the programme and how to apply please see admissions.

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.

Life at UCL

UCL enjoys a beautiful location at the heart of London. Studying and working at UCL will provide you with the opportunity to explore the best cultural and social events that makes London one of the most vibrant and multicultural cities in the world.
