NEWS: The Holden lab have moved to Warwick University as of June 2022. We will move websites soon! We will shortly be advertising two PDRA positions – see the jobs page for details
We use advanced microscopy to figure out how bugs work.
Key research themes:
- Physical principles of bacterial spatial organization
- Bacterial cell division and cell wall remodelling
- Single molecule & super-resolution microscopy
- Open source scientific software and hardware
We study basic principles of biological spatial organization in living cells, with a particular focus on how bacteria divide. To achieve this we develop novel experimental methods based on single molecule & super-resolution microscopy, microfabrication and microfluidics.
We work across the disciplines of biophysics, microbiology and microscopy.
