Biophotonics: Applying laser-based techniques to biological systems


The Centre consists of researchers who can apply strong fundamental physics skills to physics or biology problems over a range of scales from single molecule interactions, through to molecules and cells, to tissues and organs. We provide world class facilities which allow our early career researchers and postgraduate students to reach their potential and make discoveries which will contribute to the Centre becoming an international leader in biophotonics and laser science.
