New PhD Programme
UCL has developed a new Interdisciplinary PhD Programme in bioscience and bioengineering. The programme covers all levels of biology, from molecules through to cells and whole animal physiology, and provides training in cutting edge techniques, including bioengineering, data analysis, computational and mathematical modelling, imaging, structural biology and systems approaches >>more

BBSRC e-Learning for Systems Approaches Award
UCL have been awarded a £1million grant from the BBSRC to develop web-based courses to provide training to bioscience researchers in the theoretical components of systems biology. The proposal, led by Geraint Thomas in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, UCL, involves a collaboration between Birkbeck, Edinburgh University and the Open University.
UCL wins gold!
This years iGEM team have triumphed in getting a Gold medal in the finals of the iGEM Jamboree at MIT. The 2010 UCL team consisted of students from SMB, Biochemical Engineering and Science and Technology Studies, and an artist and a designer. The team designed, modelled and constructed a genetic circuit that allowed self induction of a promoter in E. coli in response to the oxygen ‘spike’ seen in fermentations of recombinant E. coli. The website shows the sophisticated design of not only their genetic circuit.
Congratulations to the UCL iGEM team.
EPSRC Cross-Disciplinary Landscape Award for UCL & Oxford
Professor Andrew Pomiankowski (Genetics, Evolution and Environment), Professor Peter Coveney (Centre for Computational Science/Chemistry) and Professor Alan Johnston (Cognitive, Perceptual and Brain Sciences) have been awarded a cross-disciplinary EPSRC research grant for a collaborative project between CoMPLEX (UCL) and ComLab (University of Oxford). The project aims to establish a new approach to science at the computational-life science interface. The grant will support a number of interdisciplinary research fellows attached to CoMPLEX’s successful Doctoral Training Centre. The grant begins on 1st April 2011 and will run for 5 years. The EPSRC is contributing £4M and Microsoft Research Cambridge £2M as a third partner, to a total award value of £6M; large scale access to UK national supercomputing resources is also included.
