University Of Oxford: Division of Structural Biology (STRUBI)

Oxford - United Kingdom

The Division of Structural Biology (STRUBI) is a research centre of excellence for the study of the molecular and structural basis of biology. Students in STRUBI study a wide range of problems from a structural and mechanistic perspective using a range of structural biology methods including X-ray Crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy, NMR and other biophysical and biochemical methods. Students benefit from our multidisciplinary application of these techniques and from access to state of the art research facilities and equipment. We have a strong history of collaboration where students take advantage of expertise from multiple laboratories to explore novel biological problems. Admission to STRUBI is solely based on excellence: doctoral students have joined the Division after undergraduate studies in subjects ranging from clinical medicine to biochemistry, chemistry and physics. Currently, more than half of our students are from outside the UK, creating a truly international atmosphere.

Centre for Mathematical Biology at University of Oxford
United Kingdom

The Centre for Mathematical Biology (CMB) at the University of Oxford is part of the Mathematical Institute and was established in 1983 as the first centre of its kind in Britain. Under the directorship of Professor James D. Murray, FRS, it was designed specifically to foster interdisciplinary research in the area. Since 1992, the CMB has been under the leadership of Professor Philip K. Maini. In 2005, Dr Ruth E. Baker was appointed the RCUK Fell

The University of Auckland - Structural Biology
New Zealand

To understand how biological processes are orchestrated, it is essential to have knowledge of molecular structure. The binding of enzymes to their substrates; the recognition of antigens by antibodies; the ways that viruses enter and exit a cell. All of these processes are most readily understood in terms of the molecules involved, and their three-dimensional organization. Consequently, our research involves the study of molecular architecture, a
