Molecular biology is the study of biology at a molecular level and is a very broad field. Members of the section reflect the diverse nature of molecular biology, having experience in genetics, clinical diagnostics, genomics, cell signalling, gene expression, genetic toxicology and multivariate statistical analysis.
Dr Andrew Walley is the head of the Section of Molecular Biology. The section provides substantial support to both undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses, and members are all active in research in their respective areas. Members of the section also carry out substantial roles in academic-related activities such as editing journals, peer review of papers and grants and serving on nationally-recognised committees.
