Investigating the rules of multicellular life at all scales from the subcellular to whole organisms
Cluster Leads: Dr Andrew Nelson, Professor Alex Jones
We apply collaborative and interdisciplinary approaches to investigate the biological principles controlling normal cellular functions, and how cells combine to produce tissues, organs, and organisms. We investigate how genetic and environmental changes influence these processes and can lead to disorders and disease. We have a wealth of expertise spanning both plant and animal kingdoms.
