Affiliated ScientistsScientific research is a global undertaking and moving around allows scientists to build new collaborations, explore new research directions and to develop expertise in new techniques and technologies.
Over the years, many research groups have come and gone from the Institute. Despite not being here all the time, some retain active links with the Institute, including holding grants here, accessing shared facilities and collaborating with other scientists here. The leaders of these groups are our Affiliated Scientists, they have expertise in a range of areas and our work with them is helping the Institute to build new connections with other organisations.
Several of our Affiliated Scientists were previously part of our Nuclear Dynamics Programme, which closed in early 2018. The Programme explored how the physical arrangement of DNA inside cells influences gene activity. Members of these groups continue to work at the Institute and make valuable contributions to our research.
