LMCB - Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology


Cell and tissue biology is one of the most exciting and important areas of biomedical research. Most cells function within tissues, with the breakdown of tissue function the basis of ageing and diseases such as cancer, inflammation, neuro-degeneration and pathogen infection. Without an understanding of the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms, directed therapeutic intervention in tissues is impossible. We foster collaborative multidisciplinary research and cutting-edge technology to promote imaginative and innovative discoveries in tissue biology.

Our research themes include:

  • Tissue biology
  • Cell organisation and dynamics
  • Physical biology of the cell
  • Cell growth and division
  • Cell decision making

Our state-of-the-art in-house technology development platforms include:
