Research Interest Groups

FoLSM Research Interest Groups - Innovation for Safe and Sustainable Food, Nutrition and Health; Membranes and Lipids; RNA Biology; From developmental biology to regenerative medicine; Spatial Biology Network; Statistical and Computational genetics and genomics; and Inequalities – Local, national and global

The Research Interest Groups bring together thematic knowledge and expertise from across the Faculty and, in some cases, from across the University. Browse the pages below for a closer look at each interest group’s members, their labs and the projects they are currently working on.

Lipids and Membranes

Lipids, together with proteins and DNA, are the main building blocks of all living beings. Lipids are major constituents of the biological membranes that delimit cells and internal organelles, allowing subcellular compartmentalisation. They serve as platforms for cellular communication, signalling and metabolism.


From Developmental Biology to Regenerative Medicine

Understanding organ development and tissue regeneration provides a framework for elucidating disease mechanisms as well as for developing new therapeutics.

Innovation for Safe and Sustainable Food, Nutrition and Health

This Research Interest Group on Innovation for Safe and Sustainable Food, Nutrition and Health provides a unique opportunity for the King’s research community to address the challenges of sustainable food development.


Spatial Biology

The Spatial Biology Network is a cross-faculty research interest group that brings together researchers from various disciplines, ranging from technology development and molecular biology, to bioinformatics and clinical translational research, to explore the complexity of spatial biology.

RNA Biology

RNA is at the forefront of biomedical research for its central role in how information is transferred from DNA to protein. It is also an essential structural and enzymatic component of many cellular machines and phase-separated compartments.
