New PhD Programme
UCL has developed a new Interdisciplinary PhD Programme in bioscience and bioengineering. The programme covers all levels of biology, from molecules through to cells and whole animal physiology, and provides training in cutting edge techniques, including bioengineering, data analysis, computational and mathematical modelling, imaging, structural biology and systems approaches >>more

Ethical and societal aspects
Research in systems biology and synthetic biology aims to understand and to re-engineer the systems level behaviour of biomolecules, biological networks, cells and organisms, be these in the body or in the biosphere. Developments in these areas therefore have the potential to transform many areas of society, ranging from clinical medicine to environmental management. These advances raise important ethical, societal and economical questions that will be addressed through original research bridging science–humanities–arts boundaries, and through engagement with the wider public.
