Research Programme

We are aiming to create a unique interdisciplinary biophysical platform for complex research and cooperation across physics, chemistry, biology, and medicine, serving at the same time as an excellent research centre for education of students.

The research of the laboratory is focused on the effects of materials, structures, interfaces, particles, and physical fields on biological systems as well as the development of new biotechnological concepts.

A growing number of studies has reported that external physical cues (e.g. mechanical forces, electromagnetic fields, nanomaterials, etc.) may have an impact on a broad range of cell behaviours and functions. However, there is lack of studies showing rigorous biochemical investigations into physical cues bioeffects problem.

The ultimate goal of our laboratory is to gain insight the understanding of how physical factors influence the processes that drive cell behaviour and functionality.
