Members of the CCB

Members of the CCB are principal investigators drawn from across QMUL, and are listed here as core members (for whom computational biology is a major focus of their research) or associate members (whose research focus is elsewhere but who make significant use of, or contribution to, computational biology). If you are interested in becoming a CCB member, please contact us
