Course summary

Overview

The Biological Physics Across Scales Centre for Doctoral Training (BiPAS CDT) at King's College London is a multi-disciplinary doctoral training programme in biological physics.

Our focus is to understand how complex macroscopic phenomena - observed at scales appropriate to tissue, organism, or even population - arise from mechanisms at the cellular, molecular, and atomic level. This programme will give students the tools and skills they need to integrate knowledge across different length and time scales to bring new understanding to the mechanisms underlying the physics of life.

Course detail

This CDT is for physical scientists - physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and related disciplines - who are fascinated by the complexity of biological systems. All students will be co-supervised by a physical scientist and a life scientist for truly interdisciplinary training at the physics-biology interface. You will develop experimental and theoretical/computational methodologies to gain insight into fundamental unanswered questions in biology, in fields ranging from immunology to stem cell biology to neuroscience. Ultimately, you will be trained to work successfully across the boundaries of traditional disciplines, scales, and methodologies and bring your expertise and innovation skills into the thriving and expanding life sciences realm, both in academia and industry.
