UCL Consortium for Mitochondrial Research

Our research recognises the fundamental role of mitochondria in the homeostasis of cells, tissues and organisms, and their key role in the development of major disease.

About our group

The consortium brings together a wide range of basic and clinical scientists from a spectrum of scientific disciplines across the UCL campus, together with UK and overseas associates. Our broad goal is to generate innovative experimental approaches and applications to illuminate major questions ranging from fundamental mechanisms of mitochondrial biology and bioenergetics to the role of mitochondria in disease.

Our ambition is to train the next generation of scientists and clinicians and to transform the investigation and management of mitochondrial related disease.



UCL offers many and varied opportunities for PhD research in all aspects of mitochondrial biology, bioenergetics and metabolism.
