Biological Physics Group

The Institute of Physics Biological Physics Group has the role of supporting the UK research community in all fields of biologically inspired physics, an area identified as lacking in the recent EPSRC commissioned report.

This includes the study of systems that are either biological in origin or serve as informative models thereof. As such these vary in scale from the molecular to whole ecosystems. Nonetheless they share a common theme: the application, and development, of physical techniques and conceptual models to the living world.

The group aims to encourage a community spirit amongst biological physicists and to promote their interests and those of the field as a whole. Discussion and collaboration is to be encouraged, primarily by the organisation and support of scientific meetings.

For all our current and forthcoming events, please refer to our Group Calendar.
