The Division of Structural Biology

During the developing COVID-19 pandemic, Division of Structural Biology is taking measures to prevent the spread of the disease.

Departments are instructed by the University's Registrar to work from home and manage building closures.

This is to restrict any contact between individuals as far as possible. The University remains open and operating as far as possible with the following restrictions:

-        Only essential activities should continue on site (e.g. research relating to Covid-19 or that of national importance, or the maintenance of research equipment and animal welfare). Departments are responsible for defining what is essential, in line with divisional guidance, and should provide appropriate operating procedures. PVC Research will be in touch with Divisions to assist in drawing up guidance.

-        Other research and teaching continues remotely where possible and students return home (if possible and where that has not already happened)

-        Departments physically close except where essential activities have to be done on site. Staff work remotely where possible. Only core support functions and other essential activities continue on site and only with critical staff on site - e.g. building access and maintenance, security, animal welfare, maintenance of research equipment.

Graduate Studies

graduate.pngThe 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. For details of the projects available and how to apply, please look under the Studentships tab.
