The Physics of Living Matter 7 meeting will be held at University College London, which is located in the centre of London.
University College London (UCL) is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with 8,000 staff and 22,000 students. Over 140 nationalities are represented among UCL students with overseas students making up nearly a third of the student body. Based in the heart of London, UCL was the first university in England to welcome students of any class, race or religion, and the first to welcome women on equal terms with men. This same radical spirit thrives today.
UCL’s excellence extends across all academic disciplines; from one of Europe’s largest and most productive centres for biomedical science interacting with eleven leading London hospitals, to world-renowned centres for architecture and fine art. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) UCL was rated the best research university in London, and third in the UK overall, for the number of its submissions which were considered of ‘world-leading quality’. The RAE confirmed UCL’s multidisciplinary research strength with outstanding results achieved across the subjects, ranging from Biomedicine, Science and Engineering, and the Built Environment to Laws, Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities.
