The Imperial College ‘Physics of Life’ Network of Excellence combines Imperial’s strength in biological physics to gain insights into fundamental biological problems, ultimately important for future (bio)technology, biomedicine, climate protection, food security, and national defence.

The network presents a rallying point for shared interests and complementary approaches, to maximise our existing problem-solving and technology development capabilities, and to develop new action plans for training and funding.

Although the network’s focus is on biological physics, the network membership and activities are open to anyone interested. In the future we hope the network will lead to large grants and centre funding.

Research themes

The Network is structured according to research themes where members can declare multiple interests:
