About this course

The School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine is an internationally recognised centre of excellence for the study of cancer biology, infection and immunology, and stem cell biology.

A major refurbishment of our immunology, microbiology, virology, stem cell biology and cancer research laboratories has created an outstanding working environment with state-of-the-art facilities. Researchers in the School also have access to facilities in the Molecular Recognition Centre and the Cell Imaging and Wolfson Bioimaging Facility within the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences.

Staff research interests include:

  • childhood and adult cancers
  • stem cell biology
  • molecular genetics
  • developmental biology
  • haematological disorders
  • immunology
  • arthritis
  • neurological diseases
  • virology
  • bacterial antibiotic resistance
  • bacterial pathogenesis

The school places its focus on translational research, that is: turning basic scientific discoveries into something clinically useful. Key successes of this type include the development of novel drugs and therapies, diagnostic tests and the implementation of changes to clinical practice. Several members of staff in the school are clinicians.

Course Modules

Research groups
Research within Cellular and Molecular Medicine is focused on three strategic research themes: Infection and Immunity, Cancer Biology and Tissue Engineering and Stem Cell Therapies.

Infection and Immunity
This wide ranging research theme includes:

  • Immunology: especially autoimmunity, mucosal immunity and vaccine development.
  • Microbiology: especially bacterial pathogenicity and antimicrobial resistance.
  • Virology: including study of important human viruses such as coronaviruses, adenoviruses and dengue viruses.

Cancer Biology
Cancer is a major cause of death in the UK and the lifetime risk of developing cancer is about one in three. Over 50% of cancers are preventable. The overall research aim for the groups within Cancer Biology is to increase our understanding of the cellular and molecular basis of cancer and to bring advances in these areas to the clinic, in terms of prevention strategies, early diagnosis and targeted novel treatments.

Tissue Engineering and Stem Cell Therapies
Research includes work with both adult and embryonic human stem cells. Investigations focus on using stem cells derived from the bone marrow of elderly osteoarthritis patients to regenerate cartilage through tissue engineering strategies in the laboratory and ultimately after implantation in the patient.
