We are combining concepts from physics and bioinformatics with experimental approaches to identify underlying mechanisms of life across the biological scales.

Multiscale Biophysics

Interdisciplinary approaches to life

We are investigating the multiscale organization of life by complementary approaches from non-equilibrium physics, mechanistic multiscale modelling, and biological experiments. A specific focus is the organization of energy metabolism and its impact on cellular development in health and disease conditions.
