Molecular, Cellular and Physiological Sciences Early-Career Advisory Group
This includes remits from four of our discovery advisory groups:
Its remit covers applications that aim to deliver a mechanistic understanding of biological processes or machines at an atomic or molecular level.
- structure or function studies of biological macromolecules
- application of physical and chemical approaches to the understanding of biological processes or machines at the atomic or molecular level
- regulation of gene expression and protein function
- genome organisation, integrity and stability.
Its remit covers applications that aim to deliver a mechanistic or functional understanding of biological processes and architecture at a cellular, tissue or organism level.
- how cells function or interact with their environment
- how organisms develop, including neurodevelopment
- stem cell biology and regenerative biology
- functional processes at the cellular, tissue or organism level
- dysregulation of cellular behaviour and pathobiology of disease, including cancer.
Its remit covers applications on fundamental aspects of genetics in human health and disease, including the development of new analytical and computational approaches to genetics and genomics.
- genetic and genomic variation in human health and disease
- genetic epidemiology and mechanisms of evolution
- comparative and functional genomics
- population genetics
- bioinformatics and biostatistics
- computational and systems biology.
Its remit covers applications that aim to develop tools and technologies (physical or data), that have the potential to be used to improve our understanding of health and disease, rather than on addressing a specific biological question.
- machine learning and artificial intelligence systems
- development of statistical, data analysis, and informatics techniques
- development of novel technologies and tools with the potential to improve our understanding of health and disease
- substantially enhancing an existing technology or resource to improve our understanding of health and disease.
We will publish membership details in the autumn.
