BIOCOMB-SC 

El grup de recerca BIOCOM-SC sorgeix de la unió de dos grups consolidats anteriors, un centrat en física no lineal i de sistemes complexos i l’altre en simulació de sistemes biològics. El grup resultant aspira a crear sinergies de manera que els coneixements de física bàsica (fluids, materials, sistemes complexos) s’utilitzin per abordar problemes en biociència, des d’aquells d’interès en biomedicina (dinàmica d’ones elèctriques al cor, xarxes neuronals, tuberculosi) a d’altres d’enginyeria de sistemes biològics (simulació de sistemes microbians d’interès agroalimentari i medi ambiental). Per assolir aquest objectiu comptem amb un grup interdisciplinari on a més de físics hi ha matemàtics, enginyers i biòlegs, en col·laboració amb grups de biologia experimental de dins i fora de Catalunya. L’objectiu final és esdevenir un grup de referència en biologia teòrica i computacional capaç de fer el salt des de les idees de física fonamental a problemes d’interès biosanitari o mediambiental.
