Research and Knowledge Transfer

Institute of Biophysics, Imaging and Optical Science (IBIOS)

In a world where scientific questions are becoming increasingly complex scientists and engineers must respond by spanning the traditional boundaries between disciplines in order to develop the more sophisticated tools required to conduct leading research. With this in mind, IBIOS was formed in 2007 to provide an environment in which researchers from a range of disciplines can work in a close knit community, with integrated facilities, in physical proximity and shared research agenda. We see this as the key to a successful interdisciplinary research programme.


Key aims and expertise

IBIOS provides a unique combination of research disciplines spanning engineering, science and medicine sharing space and facilities.

Our research mission combines state of the art developments in imaging technologies with curiosity driven research into cellular biology.
