Biomedical Physics Group

Actively involved in the complementary fields of Biophysics and Medical Physics.

The Extracellular Matrix

Unravelling the relationships between the physical properties of the macromolecular constituents of the extracellular matrix and their supramolecular assemblies and the physiological functions of the tissue.
C. Peter Winlove


The science of generating and harnessing light (photons) to image, detect and manipulate biological materials.
Julian Moger

Biophysics of Membranes

Investigating the relationships between composition, structure, physical properties and function of biological membranes.
Peter Petrov

Biophysics of the Vasculature

Biophysical aspects of normal microvascular function, abnormalities associated with conditions such as diabetes and sepsis.
