Scientific focus | We envision mechanochemical cell biology as a biomedically-relevant subject area at the interface of physics, chemistry and biology. It concerns itself with mechanisms of active self-organization in living systems, as driven by track-following molecular motors, by the dynamics of the tracks themselves, and by proteins that interact with systems of motors and tracks.

Biomedical relevance | By learning more about the operating principles and mechanisms of motorized biomolecular self-organization, we aim to engender and inform the development of new therapeutics.

Mission | Our mission is to discover molecular mechanisms and principles of active self-organization in living systems, and to apply the new knowledge, via collaboration, to improve human health and wellbeing.
