The Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences (ICaMB) carries out world leading research on a range of problems of basic biological science. Recent high profile papers from the Institute are available here.
Our aim is to answer key questions relating to fundamental cell science, using the broad range of techniques available at the Institute. The research in ICaMB is cross kingdom and has relevance to various aspects of cell function, including
Informally ICaMB's research is subdivided into two major groups:
ICaMB is based in the Faculty of Medical Sciences and occupies newly refurbished space within the Medical School. During March 2010, the Bacterial Cell Biology Group relocated to a new Medical Sciences Building.
Professor Robert Lightowlers, became Director of ICaMB in August 2012.
Professor Jeff Errington FRS FMedSci was Director of ICaMB until July 2012 and is currently Director of the Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology.
