(ii) Molecular & Cellular Mechanisms Underlying Inflammatory Processes (MolCellBiol)
The central mission of the NCBES is to develop innovative research programmes that promote the understanding and treatment of today's major diseases. Researchers at the NCBES focus on some of the major medical challenges that face the world today, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, orthopaedic disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. We provide an environment where molecular biology, cell biology, engineering, imaging technology and clinical sciences merge. With a strong focus on translating our discoveries to improved patient care, these themes are supported by enabling expertise in bioanalytical technology, materials science and glycosciences.
Our research is making a real contribution to the advancement of biomedical discovery through significant research centres and clusters including the Alimentary Glycoscience Research Centre, the Regenerative Medicine Institute, the Centre for Chromosome Biology, the Network for Functional Biomaterials, the Centre for Pain Research, the Prostate Cancer Institute and others.
