Simons Centre for the Study of Living Machines


We study molecules, cells, and organisms as living machines: products of natural selection which consume energy to achieve specific goals. Our research combines theory and experiment, and covers a range of length and timescales: from protein function, computational cell biology and evolution, to the physics of active systems.

We are supported by the National Centre for Biological Sciences and the Simons Foundation.
