Laboratory of Molecular Biology

The MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB) aims at interpreting biological phenomenae at the molecular level by a wide range of studies on the structure and functions of proteins, nucleic acids and macromolecular assemblies, and by research on the mechanisms and control of gene expression especially as related to cell differentiation and other developmental processes.

The laboratory is divided administratively into four divisions - structural studies, protein and nucleic acid chemistry, cell biology and neurobiology. However, scientific collaboration between the different divisions is extensive.
