1 course offered in the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre

The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) was established in 1965 and is a University Partner Institute (UPI) and also a Research Council Independent Research Organisation (IRO).  We serve the scientific community through the acquisition, evaluation, dissemination and use of the world's output of small molecule crystal structures by:

  • compiling the Cambridge Structural Database;
  • developing scientific products and services;
  • maximising worldwide accessibility to crystal structure data; and
  • performing and supporting fundamental research.

Research degrees

There is an ongoing programme of support for PhD students who may be located at any UK university or at the CCDC. You are required to base a significant part of your thesis on some aspect of structural chemistry and make use of the Cambridge Structural Database in your research.
