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
Jennifer Rohn and Buzz Baum (LMCB) "Comparative RNAi screening identifies a conserved core metazoan actinome by phenotype"
Jennifer Rohn and Buzz Baum (LMCB) "Identification and characterization of a set of conserved and new regulators of cytoskeletal organization, cell morphology and migration"
Complex diseases and disorders, such as cardiovascular disease, are logical targets for a systems biology approach in order to understand the structure and function of the cardiovascular system and the mechanisms involved in the disease pathogenesis. Systems biology can, for example, generate a quantitative and predictive interpretation of biological networks and signalling pathways, and provide models of physical function and phenotype.
The interests of the cardiovascular systems group include clinical electrophysiology, multi-scale computer modelling and imaging of the heart, genome wide association studies, and statistical analysis of genetic interactions.
Dr Pier Lambiase was awarded an MRC Systems Medicine grant for "An interactive in vivo and molecular investigation of the arrhythmogenic mechanisms of sudden cardiac death". Please see the news section for more details.
The first meeting of the cardiovascular systems group was held on 8th November. Speakers and topics included: Pier Lambiase (Basic and clinical electrophysiology), Tim Mohun (Imaging heart formation), Steve Humphries (Genome wide association studies, statistical analysis and genetic interactions) and Alexander Seifalian (Development of cardiovascular implants).
