Rob Phillips Group: Physical Biology of the Cell

Welcome to the Rob Phillips research group, part of the departments of Applied Physics (APh), Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics (BMB) and Mechanical Engineering (ME) at Caltech. We are interested in the physical origins of biological function and combine physical models with quantitative experimentation on problems ranging from transcriptional regulation to mechanosensation. For more information about our research, see the research page.
