Wellcome 4-Year PhD Programme in Integrated Molecular, Cellular and Translational Biology


The Wellcome Trust Integrated molecular, cellular and translational biology programme combines scientific excellence with a commitment to improving the working environment and transition support for trainees. This PhD programme, provided by world-renowned scientists from the School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, will train the next generation of scientists at the forefront of international science. Students will join our supportive and positive research culture with the opportunity to select research projects centred around four themes:

  1. Cellular Regulation
  2. Protein Modification
  3. Infection and Immunity
  4. Drug Discovery and Translation

Around 50 different potential supervisors will participate in this programme

Dr David Murray

We are interested in the regulation of cellular processes which are responsible for forming structures of the cell. In particular, we are interested in the structures formed by polarized trafficking, such as cilia and tight junctions. By harnessing a wide array of biochemical, biophysical, and cell biological methods, we are tackling mechanisms with direct disease relevance with a unique approach.
