University of Edinburgh
The Institute of Cell Biology (ICB), including the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology, hosts 34 laboratories carrying out world-class research into fundamental mechanisms relating to cellular function. A significant proportion of our research involves systems biology approaches and mathematical modelling. Our research groups comprise one of the largest communities of cell biology researchers in the UK. Many of our staff are Fellows of the Royal Society and acknowledged leaders in their field. Most PhD students who train at the ICB continue with their academic career or join research in the industry, often becoming independent group leaders. **Diversity of interests** We offer a wide scope of projects covering different areas of cell biology, including: - the synthesis, processing, localisation and degradation of RNA - epigenetic control of gene expression, chromosome function and genome stability - mechanisms of cell growth and duplication - the rules that govern cellular architecture - biotechnology - synthetic biology - microbial regulation A variety of courses in microscopy, bioinformatics and proteomics are available to all our PhD students.
