Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology



The Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology (MCISB) at the University of Manchester has been awarded 6.4M by the BBSRC and EPSRC to pioneer the development of new experimental and computational technologies in Systems Biology, and their exploitation.

The MCISB is intended to provide a hub for cutting-edge systems biology research in the Manchester area, acting as a focal point for the creation of the necessary ideas and infrastructure, and for establishing new methods and routines.

MCISB is located on the second floor of the Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre (MIB).


Hans V. Westerhoff and team would like to thank the EPSRC and BBSRC (and BBSRC-BRIC) for support of the Manchester Centre for Integrative Systems Biology, as well as various other funding agencies (EU-FP7 [SYNPOL #311815, H2020 [Epipredict, #642691 and Corbel #654248], NWO, the SysMO and ERASysBio funder communities).
