Our research is focused on understanding the effect of a mechanical force on the nanomechanical properties of biologically relevant entities, spanning from cell membranes to individual proteins.

Our laboratory is split between the Department of Physics of King’s College London (Strand Campus) and the Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics (Guy’s Campus).

1st October 2018:

Science and knowledge are based on freedom of speech and thought. Democracy and dialogue is the only base for progress. Today I am very sad and horrified at the events in Catalonia, which has been sadly repressed and violently outraged by the Spanish Government. Democracy has been banned in Catalonia. Shame on Mr. Rajoy and on those citizens supporting his violent actions.

My full support to my fellow Catalans.

Visca la terra lliure!
