Athanasios MantalarisThe Biological Systems Engineering Laboratory (BSEL) was established in 2004 as a result of the vision and collaboration between Prof. Sakis MantalarisProf. Stratos Pistikopoulos (Texas A&M University, Former Director of CPSE, Imperial College London), and Dr. Nicki Panoskaltsis (Reader in Haematology, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London).

BSEL is part of the Centre for Process Systems Engineering. The research vision of BSEL is captured in the expertise of its founders, which include a biochemical/tissue engineer, a modeller, and a clinician as it seeks to integrate experimentation with modelling in a translational approach to biological and medical problems.

BSEL has its state-of-the-art experimental research facilities in the Department of Chemical Engineering and its modelling facilities in the Centre for Process Systems Engineering.

BSEL is headed by Prof. Sakis Mantalaris.

The BSEL is situated at the 1M level of the Department of Chemical Engineering at the South Kensington campus of Imperial College London.

Details about travelling to and from Imperial College London are available.

Once you have arrived at the South Kensington campus, enter the Chemical Engineering department (entrance near ICU Shop) from the main campus walkway.

Then turn right to the second floor corridor and walk down the stairs near the end of it. You will find the entrance to the BSEL just one floor below.

There are also other Imperial College London online maps describing all campuses.
