Research Interests

Three main area of research at the Asally lab are Bacterial Electrophysiology , Collective Dynamics , and Synthetic Biology . Please visit the lab website for more information.

While molecular biology has made astonishing advancements over the last half-century, physiology and physical biology fell out of favour in the 1970s. However, as molecular biology advances, these once-unfashionable domains of biology, like bioelectricity, are beginning to resurge. We are passionate about understanding and exploiting dynamic biological behaviours by combining old and new ideas and learning old to create new!

We are also part of Bio-Electrical Engineering Innovation Hub
