UCL Division of Biosciences


About Us

The Brodsky Laboratory has been studying clathrin biochemistry, cell biology, and physiology for nearly 30 years. Until recently, the group was based at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

In 2014, Professor Brodsky accepted the position of Director of the Division of Biosciences at UCL, and the group has now fully relocated to London. The laboratory is part of the Department of Structural and Molecular Biology in the Division of Biosciences.
