A part of the Soft Matter team activities is dedicated to the application of soft matter physics to biological systems.
We use conceptual tools from soft matter physics in order to explain and interpret some specific biological mechanisms occurring at the cellular scale or in order to develop biomimetic models to answer specific questions in biology or on the specific functioning of some proteins.
