Meet a biophysicist – Prof. Malcolm Irving

As a continual celebration of the biophysics week, which was held from 12th to 18th March, we have asked group leaders about their experiences with biophysics. Today, let me introduce Professor Malcolm Irving, a professor of biophysics specialised in the study of skeletal muscle contraction using the fluorescence and X-ray techniques he has developed (click here to find out more about his research).

Meet a biophysicist – Prof. Mathias Gautel

We continue to celebrate the Biophysics Week! In 2016, the Biophysics Society started an annual Biophysics Week to celebrate and raise the awareness of the field (visit their website for more information: British Biophysical Society page).

Here at the Randall Centre, we have many biophysicists conducting an array of amazing research. To shed some light on the biophysics research done within our centre, we’ve asked group leaders to share what they do and what got them into this exciting field! Below, review what Professor Mathias Gautel has to say about biophysics!

Meet a biophysicist – Dr. Susan Cox!

It’s Biophysics Week! If the term ‘biophysics’ gets your head scratching, don’t worry – it is very likely you haven’t heard much about it because it’s a relatively new field. As a scientific discipline, biophysics began in the middle of the twentieth century, which is only about sixty years ago! In 1958, the Biophysics Society was founded to encourage the development and dissemination of knowledge in biophysics. In 2016, the Biophysics Society started an annual Biophysics Week to celebrate and raise the awareness of the field.
