This is the web site about work and activities in the research group studying the physics of polymers and biological systems, with Kristian Müller-Nedebock as the principle investigator. We specialise in understanding polymer and filament networks, active systems and physics of structures at cellular and sub-cellular length-scales. We collaborate with brilliant colleagues and groups at Stellenbosch University and internationally. Our group’s work is mainly theoretical but with ever stronger connections to other groups performing fascinating experiments (do click on “Research” and “Persons” above).
We have close connections and research collaborations with other groups at Stellenbosch including the Laser Research Institute, the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Physiological Sciences.
After an accidental total deletion of our previous web site, we have decided to build a new site from scratch. We request your understanding as the amount and detail of information here will only be expanded gradually, but systematically, with most emphasis on the current and most recent work.
Funding: Our research activities are generously supported through grants, participation and scholarships from various organisations, including the National Research Foundation, the Organisation for Women in Science for the Developing World, the National Institute for Theoretical Physics and under the Newton programme. We are extremely grateful to these organisations for their support.
Funding statement: This work is based on the research supported in part by the
