Biographical / Historical

The Institute of Cell and Molecular Biology was formed in 1990. Prior to that the subject of biology had been scattered through seven different departments of the University of Edinburgh and this arrangement was viewed as detremental to both teaching and the furthering of research. The Department of Molecular Biology was joined with the departments of Botany, Microbiology and parts of both Zoology and Genetics, securing additional funding from organisations including the Royal Society, the Medical Research Council and the Wellcome Trust.
