Welcome to the Cell Structure and Mechanics Group website! Our mission is to develop accurate computational models of cellular structure on which to simulate cell signalling and mechanics to gain fundamental insights into structure-function relationships from the sub-cellular to multi-cellular scale. Our vision is to use cells as next generation engineering systems that we can manipulate for novel health and engineering solutions.

We work under the umbrella of the Systems Biology Laboratory at the University of Melbourne. Established in Feb 2014, we are building a multi-disciplinary research team of engineers, physiologists and microscopists to answer fundamental questions in cell physiology.

WE ARE HIRING! Interested candidates are encouraged to browse the research opportunities and publications and to contact Dr. Vijay Rajagopal for further information and expressions of interest.
