The Living Systems Institute is home to mathematicians, physicists, bioengineers, biologists, and biomedical scientists. Our interdisciplinary and collaborative research philosophy is embodied in three cross-cutting themes:.
Mathematics of Life
Developing and analysing mathematical models to explain and predict function and dysfunction in biological systems.
Physics of Life
Uncovering the fundamental physical principles that govern the dynamic organisation of living systems.
These themes drive investigation, discovery, and application across all scales of life:
Gene expression and genomics
Structure / Function
Phages and Viruses
Stem cells and development
