Cell and Developmental Biology

Our research encompasses cell and developmental biology and ranges from molecular analyses through to in vivo studies in a variety of species. The work has been consistently rated as world-leading in many research assessment exercises, as exemplified by the 2014 Nobel Prize awarded to Professor John O’Keefe. Our interests are broadly grouped in the following 5 themes, although our Department’s interdisciplinary approach breaks across many traditional boundaries.

Molecular Cell and Systems Biology
Comparative and Evolutionary Morphology
Functional Genetics and Model Systems
Stem Cells and Development
