The Institute of Chemical Biology Centre for Doctoral Training has stimulated the growth of a collaborative network in chemical biology that spans a total of >165 research groups from all three faculties of Imperial College London, plus numerous industrial collaborators and a number of UK and Overseas universities.

This network plays a key role in supporting a vibrant training culture and environment for our students.

The success of the CDT led to the upgrading of the Chemical Biology Centre to the Institute of Chemical Biology, currently one of 28 Imperial College Centres of Excellence, and an important component and contributor to the College research strategy.

This network has enabled the CDT to shape the national landscape by bringing together groups modifying, translating and improving technologies that are already being used for biological analysis and drug discovery, and groups developing wholly novel approaches not yet ready for deployment. It has provided an interface between these groups and end users in academia, industry and the medical sector and driven an extensive programme of technology transfer.
