Cambridge gets biophysical

The new center.JPG

Posted on behalf of Anna Petherick

Cambridge University opened a big black Physics of Medicine centre this week, inviting Nobel Prize winner Sir Aaron Klug along for the plaque-revealing ceremony.

The swish new centre is in the rapidly developing West Cambridge site, which also houses the William Gates Building computing laboratory. The Physics of Medicine building makes the next door Cavendish laboratory—where most of the university’s physics research happens—look rather short and 1970s-shabby.

Athene Donald, deputy head of physics, will run the new center. She was recently profiled in The Observer and on BBC Radio 4 after being made a laureate of the UNESCO/L’Oreal-sponsored Women in Science awards.

The centre aims to become the place to go if you want to research anything biophysical, from tissue scaffolds to the properties of the eye’s optical fibres.

    Physics of Medicine

    I am very glad since I am told by The Great Beyond about Centre to research Physics of Medicine opens. Really, it seem to me as the horse discovery!

    In fact, if you visit kindly my website, you’ll may find a lot of paper on Quantum Biophysical Semeiotics, I have wrote years ago. A part from some farsighted, open-minded Editors (Bibliography), unfortunately the majority of physicians ignore my researches.

    I hope that you will be able to spread such as new physical semeiotics, which utlizes quantum physics and non-linear dynamics in studying biological system, under physiological (White Zone), pathological (Black Zone) and intermediate (Grew Zone) conditions (Ibidem).

    May I look forwards your help?

    Best wishes
