Wallace Group

We build artificial mimics of cell membranes; both to improve our understanding of membrane biology, and to engineer new devices inspired by biology.

Our approach is to dismantle the membrane into its component parts, and then rebuild it from scratch to understand what’s going on. We do this using a range of optical techniques capable of watching individual molecules.
