Biological Physics (BioP)
Our activities at the Department of Physics and Astronomy are part of a much larger, UCL-wide research activity on biological physics, spread over different departments, institutes and networks:
A significant part of our research is based at the London Centre for Nanotechnology.
Our researchers are part of the cross-faculty Institute for the Physics of Living Systems.
The Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology spans research at UCL and Birkbeck.
The MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology investigates fundamental aspects of cell function and human disease.
The Department of Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology undertakes interdisciplinary research into the nervous system.
The Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering develops new technologies for diagnosing, treating and managing medical conditions and diseases.
The Image Quantification Club (IQ club) brings closer together experts in cell biology and quantitative image analysis.
The Soft Materials Network provides a platform for UCL researchers that are interested in soft materials.
