Cytoskeleton basis of cell polarization and migration

actin filament organization in a migrating fibroblast The Cramer laboratory studies cytoskeleton mechanisms in cell polarity and cell migration. Cell migration is essential for life; required throughout embryo development, and for tissue repair and immunity in both the embryo and the adult. It also contributes to several important diseases, including inflammatory diseases, mental retardation and the spread of cancer. Determining molecular mechanisms controlling cell migration thus promises to provide effective therapeutic strategies for treating disease. We are interested in how migrating cells reach new territory and how they polarize to activate motility. We focus on determining actin...

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.
