Welcome to the Cancer Biophysics Laboratory at the University of Cyprus
The Cancer Biophysics Laboratory of the University of Cyprus is a vibrant and internationally competitive research environment where novel computational approaches are combined with state-of-the-art experimental techniques to further explore the mechanopathology of cancer and overcome the barriers to the effective delivery of drugs to solid tumours.
The focus of the lab is the application of principles from engineering and biology in order to investigate the mechanisms with which physical forces are related to tumour growth, progression and treatment.
