Our work is highly multidisciplinary focussing on Biophysics and Nanomedicine. We have strong national and international collaborations and have close local links, through joint appointments and collaborations, with the Faculty of Medicine and Health as well as with the Faculty of Biological Sciences. We are part of the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology and the Bragg Centre.
We have world leading experimental capability from low temperature AFM through to high speed imaging. These are applied to molecular systems.
Our research covers:
Interactions at lipid membrane interfaces
Protein folding and assembly
Nanomaterials for diagnostics and therapy
Microfluidics for single cell studies and organoid
We have world leading experimental capability from low temperature AFM through to high speed imaging and are developing new approaches for studying low dimensional systems (high speed AFM) and living systems (high speed fluorescence).
We have opportunities for prospective postgraduate researchers. Find out more.
