Supervisors

Stem Cell Four-Year PhD Programme: Supervisors for 2020/21

Note that all Supervisors are now located in the Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre, except for the Simons Group who are based at the Gurdon Institute/Cavendish Laboratory

Students recruited to the MRC-funded 'Physical Biology of Stem Cells' Programme may also be supervised by one of our Affiliated Research Groups.
