Mathematical & Physical Sciences
The Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences
encompasses the logical, experimental and mathematical study of our
Universe. The Faculty is an internationally renowned centre for both theoretical and applied research and a centre of educational excellence.
Front-line research feeds directly into our teaching programmes, and our students benefit from access to first-class laboratory facilities.
The structure of pores found in cell nuclei has been uncovered by a UCL-led team of scientists, revealing how they selectively block certain molecules from entering, protecting genetic material and normal cell functions. The discovery could lead to the development of new drugs against viruses that target the cell nucleus and new ways of delivering gene therapies, say the scientists behind the study.
