Details

The first phase of this programme has seen researchers using new approaches from physics to address key life-science problems including:

  • how bacteria resist antibiotics
  • how air pollution affects the cells in our lungs
  • how plants know when it’s safe to flower
  • how moths change sound waves to camouflage themselves from predators.
