UCL Division of Biosciences



The Research Department of Structural and Molecular Biology, formerly the UCL Department of Biochemistry, has a wide range of and leading research groups and diverse research activities.

Please follow links on our Academic Staff page to see the activities of individual groups. We are also part of the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology, a joint institute between Birkbeck and UCL that seeks to integrate techniques from the chemical and physical sciences to provide insight into the molecular basis of biological processes.

Research Facilities

The Department hosts the Darwin Research Facility within the Darwin Building and has access to a number of Research Facilities within the Division of Biosciences.
