About

The Institute of Biological Chemistry, Biophysics and Bioengineering at Heriot-Watt University is focused on applying advances in the chemical, physical, and engineering sciences to enable and enhance life science research.

Overview

Details

The interdisciplinary research at the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Biophysics and Bioengineering at Heriot-Watt University interests of the members and the state-of-the-art facilities provide a unique, stimulating environment for integrative research.

Life scientists, physicists, chemists, engineers and mathematicians work together to enhance the acquisition of data and maximise the information extracted from it. We run and participate in major training, research and access networks including the Edinburgh Super-Resolution Imaging Consortium, the Multiplexed “Touch and Tell” Optical Molecular Sensing and Imaging Interdisciplinary Research Centre, as well as collaborative projects to grow synthetic blood from stem cells, new diagnostics, foetal DNA separation technologies, cancer biology, diabetes, high-speed bio-imaging and analysis and 3D printing of stem cells.

Programme Structure

Examples of the types of research projects on offer:

  • Development of light-regulated tools for biomedical research
  • Super-resolution and functional imaging of ion channel molecular activity in living cells
  • Microfluidic enrichment of donor DNA for detection of pancreatic islet graft rejection
  • Development of cutting-edge downstream bioprocessing
