About

The Cell Biology programme from University of Liverpool is a leading international centre for research into the fundamental principles of human physiology, with expertise in all aspects of modern physiology.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The experimental approaches of the Cell Biology programme from University of Liverpool involve biochemical, behavioural, electrophysiological, molecular, structural and state-of art imaging (such as multiphoton confocal, spinning disk, light sheet and 3D electron microscopy) applied to mammalian cell systems and also to model organisms such as Caenorhabdities elegans, Drosophila melanogaster, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Dictyostelium. 

Our exciting and dynamic research environment  benefits from increasing collaboration with academic clinicians looking for cell-based and cell targeted therapies.

Facilities

The research infrastructure of the Institute of Translational Medicine is designed to give researchers access to world class facilities in the best possible environment.

Our centres, facilities and resources give us the ability to drive biomedical research from patient samples to the laboratory bench and vice versa from newly generated drug compounds into clinical trials. They provide powerful, productive collaborations between experts within the University and organisations worldwide.
