Welcome to the Laboratory of Biophysics

Have you ever realized that a very small but fantastically complex creature – a living cell – responds to external stress with a number of different ways that are far from being understood?!

Join us on a new adventure into supramolecular world where cells are interacting with fascinating new materials and systems. We are trying to catch them in the act by new and exciting, unique techniques, coupling traditional spectroscopies and various imaging tools.



We apply several original experimental, simulation and modelling techniques to tackle our diverse scientific problems.

We support industrial partners and other investors to develop high-end technologies and customized infrastructure.

Open positions and collaboration

Are you as passionate about the supramolecular world as we are? Join our team - we currently have one PhD and one postdoc position available! We are open to new collaborations as well.
