Biophysics and Biochemistry
The division of biophysics and biochemistry merges the foundations of physics, chemistry and biology. The research interests of the group lie at the intersection of biochemical and biophysical processes in the cell, developing new biophysical methodologies and realistic and predictive biophysical models.
We use a combination of advanced imaging, multi-omics, computational and biophysical tools to address complex cellular functions. We are specifically interested in the circadian regulation of cellular physiology, mechanics of force sensors, chaperone biology, cellular and nuclear mechanobiology.
