PhysicalBiology

Physical Biology centres on the development and adaptation of physical methods and concepts for elucidating the complexity and dynamics of biological structures.  We apply such an approach to studying transport phenomena in living systems. We are particularly interested in the mesoscopic nature of transport how the entire organism physiology is the result of a hierarchy of molecular recognition events, macromolecular phoresis, and cellular and tissual taxis. From molecules to nanoscale assemblies to cells, to tissue to the whole organism we thus study the following processes: multivalent and multiplexed interactions; protein/nanomaterial interaction; diffuso- and osmo- phoresis; endocytosis, trafficking and membrane-bound interactions; and tissue percolation and size-exclusion effects.
