Cell biophysics

The cell biophysics research area incorporates the use of optical physics to investigate and control the structure and interactions in living cells.

Our vision is to provide a world-class research and training environment at the interface of biology and physics. We aim to:

  • use light to probe and perturb macromolecular structure and interactions in living cells
  • improve our understanding of diseases, such as cancer, at the molecular level
  • provide fundamental knowledge that will ultimately improve well-being.

Our Cell Biophysics - Microscopy Lab is at Swinburne University of Technology.
