Our research is focussed on the innovation of new technology

inspired by biological principles

Our ultimate goal is to develop hybrid systems that merge the functions and properties of biological systems with the world of electronics. We thus have a particular expertise in the integration, detection and manipulation of biological materials, such as DNA, peptides and proteins, with electronic devices. 

Our research is highly cross-disciplinary and we collaborate closely with scientists and engineers from across physics, chemistry, molecular biology and the clinical and social sciences.
