Our lab


Charge transport is ubiquitous in Life and regulates almost every biological function. The vision of BioMolecular Electronics at King’s College London is understanding the supramolecular basis that sustain highly efficient charge diffusion in living organisms. We use biophysical approaches to tackle into this complex problem across different length scales; from very simple molecular backbones to large protein complexes.

Our Current Researches

Among our technical capabilities, we can precisely control the formation of electrical contacts with individual (bio)molecules between two metal electrodes, which allow us characterizing their charge transport signatures at an unbeatable resolution. In combination with a variety of other experimental approaches, we are tackling into several cutting-edge scientific questions that constitute the main core of our current projects
