Brunel University London is a world-class university based in Uxbridge, West London, and was established in 1966. Our mission has always been to combine academic rigour with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative approach pioneered by our namesake Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

The Centre for Systems and Synthetic Biology at Brunel University is a Research Centre that creates the interdisciplinary environment necessary to bring together the expertise needed to address the major challenges of biological sciences in the 21st Century. The Centre is a joint enterprise between the School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics (SISCM) and the School of Health Sciences and Social Care (SHSSC), and in future will involve the School for Engineering Design, Institute for the Environment and the Centre for Sports Medicine and Human Performance, fostering interaction and collaborations between these schools and the other Schools and Research Centres across the Brunel Campus University.

The interdisciplinary nature of the Centre is emphasized and reinforced by co-directorships spanning the two lead strands, by David Gilbert, Professor of Computing Science and Head of SISCM and Nigel Saunders, Interdisciplinary Chair of Systems Biology, who has a predominantly biomedical, molecular biology, and genomics background. Together they have established a range of ‘wet’ and ‘dry’ collaborations across the University, and with research groups beyond Brunel.
