The goal of our group is to uncover mathematical laws
that govern the living world. The 21st century has seen an explosion of
quantitative data in Biology and one of the great challenges is to develop
equally quantitative models that are capable of explaining all this data;
for such models to be useful they must also provide experimentally testable
predictions. If physics is the science that seeks to describe Nature using
the language of mathematics then physical biology is that part of physics
that concerns itself with the living world.
