Course content

This research area has grown and embodies a number of disciplines. At Nottingham, we adopt an integrated approach in which several strategies are developed to address particular problems in Cell Biology. Projects are available to study how the unlimited potential of primordial germ cells is governed at a molecular level during development in representative species. Within the cell, important processes are governed by the structures and dynamics of numerous macromolecules. Projects are offered to directly visualise macromolecular behaviour with a view to elucidating cellular function. These examine protein-protein, protein-membrane and receptor-mediated interactions within cells using state-of-the-art imaging systems.
