Research interests

The Biomedical Physics Research Group applies insight derived from fundamental biophysics research to major problems in biology and clinical medicine. Core research has three principal themes.

Research area Lead academics 
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.  
Prof. C. Peter Winlove
Biophysics of Cell Membranes
Investigating the relationships between composition, structure, physical properties and function of biological membranes. 
Dr Peter Petrov,
Prof. C. Peter Winlove
Physical Methods for Biomedical Research
Developing and applying nonlinear optical microscopy, Raman and mid-IR imaging, and fluorescence and optical super-resolution microscopy to provide new insight into structure-function relations in living systems and biomedical optics.
