Molecules Genes & Cells Club

This is the homepage of Newcastle University Molecules Genes and Cells Club (MGCC). Visit us to find out about future and past events.

The mission of MGCC:

Our main aim is to promote interactions within Newcastle Medical School. The Faculty hosts dozens of research groups working in the area of eukaryotic molecular cell biology but we are scattered across three campuses and numerous Institutes which hampers efficient communication. The MGCC series brings together researchers sharing an interest in various aspects of eukaryotic cell biology (signal transduction, regulation of gene expression, protein synthesis, trafficking, degradation etc) and promotes an informal exchange of ideas.

The format of the seminars:

Four talks presented by new PIs, postdocs and PhD students. Nibbles, networking and friendly atmostphere in the interval and an optional but visit to a pub. Please get in touch (see Contact Information) if you would like to nominate yourself or others as a speaker in one of the future meetings.


3 clubs (Autumn, Winter and Spring MGCC) each academic year, taking place on Thursdays 3:00-5:30 pm.
