LJP at a glance

LJP research activities consist in Physics at the interface of with Biology and Medicine. We develop new experimental approaches to probe complex biological systems at different scales, and we develop bio-inspired systems to develop new concepts or to improve our understanding of given biological mechanisms. A large part of our research aims at exploring the response of a biological system to external perturbations. Finally, the LJP includes a theoretical component closely interacting with experimenters.
