Physical Approach of Biological Problems

Cell biology and soft matter physics both share similar orders of magnitude with two important differences: biological systems are clearly out of equilibrium and molecular specificity can be strongly relevant. We are using the standard tools of soft matter physics to provide a quantitative description of cellular systems. Drawing inspiration from living systems, we are raising new and challenging physical questions. This project only makes sense with strong interactions with biologists.

    Three research projects at Institut Curie financed by the ERC Synergy Grant
    Three projects at Institut Curie are laureate of the highly selective and prestigious Synergy Grant 2022 program, awarded by the European Research Council. These three grants, for an amount of 10 million euros each, shine a light on Institut Curie’s excellence and its teams in cellular biology. A breakthrough field to further the fight against cancer.
