The Institute of Systems and Synthetic Biology at Imperial College is made up of a number of Centres and Groups, with the Institute acting as a coordinating body to bring these together and enhance interaction.
The Institute incorporates the follwoing research groups:
Effectively linking genetics and genomics to every medical specialty within the College. Through cutting-edge research, integration with medical care and training of clinical and non-clinical scientists, the research makes cross-Divisional contributions across all Faculties of the College.
Strategic Theme Lead: Professor Tim Aitman
Combining science and engineering to design and build new biological functions and systems, and to understand existing biological life through its rational redesign.
World leaders in multivariate metabolic profiling (metabonomics and metabolomics) and in the statistical integration (chemometrics) of multi-omics data.
Using systems biology to unravel the questions of malaria biology is another importants aspect of the Institute's research.
Single Cell Analysis
Creating an advanced suite of technologies for the study of single cells using proteomic approaches.
