We are interested in the forces that hold together biological systems. For example the forces that hold together cancer cells in a tumor and the forces that bind drugs to a cell surface.  The misfiring of these biological interactions can lead to,or be a result of disease. Thus the ultimate goal of our research is to inform the development of disease treatments based on knowledge of biological interactions. Work is highly interdisciplinary involving physics, engineering, biomedicine and chemistry.

We work at the interface between chemistry, biology and physics and employ both experimental and theoretical approaches. If you are interested in studying challenging systems involving complexity and are not afraid of inter-disciplinary work please don’t hesitate to contact me.
