Cellular logistics: Biological physics of selective protein and gene transport across the nuclear envelope

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The coordinated transport of proteins and nucleic acids between the nucleus and the cytosol is vital for proper gene expression and cell function, and hijacked by viruses to propagate. Read more

Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize.

Biomolecules take charge

The interactions between biomolecules such as DNA and proteins is often influenced by electrostatic charge. Until recently, however, scientists had no tools to detect and quantify these charges at high, spatial resolution and sensitivity in water, that is, the “natural” environment of all biological structures.

Development of peptide hydrogel as an anticancer drug carrier

Growth in nanotechnologies can now be exploited to enable engineering of new drug delivery systems for enhancing the entrapment of drugs in nano-sized structures with tailored physical properties to suit therapeutic need. Read more

Design and characterisations of novel antimicrobial biomaterials

Self-assembled nanobiomaterials are becoming an important research theme due to their potential in infection control and wound care, gene and cell delivery, biodevices and tissue regeneration. Read more

Self-assembly and phase separation in biological systems

Are you interested in joining research on the interface of cutting edge biophysical modeling and biological experiment?. A PhD project is available to model self-assembly and phase separation in biological cells. Read more

Patterning biological cells by directed molecular transport

Are you interested in joining research on the interface of cutting edge biophysical modeling and biological experiment?. A PhD project is available to model the role of directed molecular transport, powered by molecular motors moving along the microtubule cytoskeleton, in spatial organization of biological cells. Read more

Design principles and emergent behavior in biological systems

Student background. Theoretical Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering (background in biology not necessary). The student will develop mathematical and computational approaches to analyze the behavior of complex biological systems, focusing on analyzing physiological dynamics. Read more

Phase transitions and self-assembly of protein in biological fluids

The project. The ability to control the self-assembly of biological molecules to form defined or functional structures with a high degree of predictability is a central aim for soft matter science and synthetic biology. Read more

Noise and Memory in Open Quantum Systems

Quantum effects and biological systems seem to be at odds with each other. Quantum effects, such as coherence, tunnelling and entanglement, are typically confined to systems at low temperatures and little interaction with the environment. Read more

Dancing photosystems within biological rocks: towards understanding on fast deterioration of dry chlorophyllous seeds and spores

  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
Project Highlights. Acquire a diverse and up-to-date skill set towards understanding the physics of life by working with spectroscopists at Warwick and plant scientists at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. Read more
