ABOUT

THE PELLING LAB FOR BIOPHYSICAL MANIPULATION IS AN EXPLORATORY SPACE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA DEDICATED TO UNDERSTANDING THE LIMITS OF LIVING SYSTEMS. THE LAB IS COMPOSED OF A DIVERSE GROUP OF EXPERIMENTALISTS OPEN TO THE POSSIBILITIES THAT OCCUR AT THE INTERFACE BETWEEN DISCIPLINES. WE ARE GENERALLY INTERESTED IN UNDERSTANDING HOW LIVING CELLULAR SYSTEMS CAN BE CONTROLLED, MANIPULATED AND RE-PURPOSED USING NON-GENETIC AND NON-PHARMACOLOGICAL APPROACHES. BY PUSHING LIVING SYSTEMS TO ARTIFICIAL LIMITS THE LAB HAS DISCOVERED SURPRISING BEHAVIOURS AND AN ASTONISHING ABILITY OF CELLS TO ADAPT AND RESPOND TO UNUSUAL STIMULI.
