Edwards Centre for Soft Matter


Research interests

The research interests of the group are divided between the theoretical quantum and classical condensed matter physics and the field of stem and developmental cell biology.

In the field of stem and developmental cell biology, the group benefits from long-term lineage tracing methods using hereditary labelling of tissues to study the factors that regulate the balance between cell proliferation and differentiation in adult and developing tissues.
