Living Systems Institute

Discovery research to reveal the machinery of cell identity and function 

The Living Systems Institute (LSI) pioneers interdisciplinary science aimed at understanding and controlling the individual and collective properties of cells, the basic units of all life. We combine biology and medicine with advanced physical sciences technologies and powerful mathematical modelling capabilities. Fusing disciplines enables deep examination of mechanisms at all levels, from atom to animal. We apply this collaborative philosophy to cell function in key areas of molecular and cellular biology, stem cells & development, and neuroscience
