qBio is the power of math-based reasoning and advanced instrumentation from physics and engineering harnessed to discover fundamental principles of living systems.
To see qBio research in action just press on any of the tiles below:
Investigator: Massimo Vergassola Research Interest: To understand sensing of their environment by living systems, and its exploitation for control and biological function.
Web: Vergassola Group
Investigator: Olga Dudko Research Interest: We search for general principles that unify seemingly very different and often formidably complex biological systems. We enjoy trying to capture these principles in the form of physical theories that are reasonably simple and abstract, and yet generate concrete, experimentally testable predictions.
