Cambridge Centre for Physical Biology


The Cambridge Centre for Physical Biology aims to support and facilitate multidisciplinary collaborations across the University of Cambridge. We will help coordinate and disseminate events and activities, support existing collaborations and promote new interactions. The Centre is currently setting up a number of schemes aiming to promote interdisciplinary connections, including pump-priming grants, summer studentships and a visiting scholar scheme.

Cambridge Physical Biology brings together researchers from across the different Schools of the University of Cambridge to help address key open questions in Biology.
