in Molecular & Cell Biophysics and NanoBioPolymers
We are a diverse group of scientists & engineers with interests spanning molecular & cell biophysics to polymer nano-engineering. Nuclear, Cytoskeleton, & Stem Cell biophysics are core interests, as is Phagocytosis and Membrane Biophysics. In Materials Biology, we develop and apply polymers in vivo as well as in vitro, ranging from Block Copolymers for Self-Assembly to Gels of Controlled Elasticity plus a range of Nanoparticles (eg. Polymersomes & Filomicelles). Methods & Materials constantly evolve but range from micro/nano physical tools such as AFM and super-resolution fluroescence to recombinants & mutants, synthetic polymers & peptides, and molecular profiling.
