About

The Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology (LMCB) at University College London (UCL) is dedicated to research aimed at understanding the molecular and cellular basis of cell behaviour relevant to human disease.

Overview

The Molecular Cell Biology programme at University College London (UCL) provides a broad in-depth training in molecular cell biology and fundamental aspects of biomedical science. 

The programme provides students with the opportunity to carry out cutting-edge research in an internationally renown environment. First-year rotations through three different laboratories and a bespoke tutorial series just are some of the programme highlights.

The goals of our training are to produce scientists who have explored one area and one level of analysis in great depth, but who are familiar with the full scope of molecular and cell biology. They should be able to move from one level to another in a critical and creative manner. We also try to develop an appreciation for translational research that bears on human disease.

The foundation of your career

Throughout the course of the PhD programme students gain a wide range of employability skills, these include but are not limited to, training in presentation skills, computer literacy, reading and analysis of scientific papers, team working, committee membership, event organisation (including outreach events) and cutting-edge microscopy training. 

Employability

Recent graduates have secured positions as research fellows and postdoctoral researchers at leading UK universities including the University of Cambridge and UCL, and at overseas organisations such as Memorial Sloane-Kettering Cancer Center, USA and the Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore. 

Graduates of the programme have also established careers within the scientific technology and pharmaceutical industries.
