This symposium will bring together experts from across disciplines to discuss and exchange knowledge on physical science which is at the centre of our research agenda. The purpose is to develop new collaborations resulting in novel physical approaches, encompassing new technologies and theoretical models, to comprehend the complex biological systems that define life.

The event will open with Professor Buzz Baum, group leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology at University of Cambridge, followed by talks from academics across King's College London.

There will be an opportunity to meet researchers associated with the Centre and learn more about their work, followed by a drinks reception.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact the Centre for the Physical Science of Life team at

The event you will be attending is an in-person event only and will be recorded.

About us

The Centre for the Physical Science of Life realises the transformative power of physical science in advancing understanding of the fundamental mechanisms underlying living systems across scales. The goal of our unique physical science centre is to achieve a whole-scale quantitative understanding of life using physical and mathematical principles.

Based in the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical and Engineering Sciences (NMES), the Centre coalesces expertise across our Faculty in creative fusions of natural, mathematical and engineering sciences, our ambition is to solve the fundamental challenge of modern biology; bridging the gap between current biomolecular and systems level descriptions of biological phenomena.
