Research

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.
