SpecialismsBiomedical Physics

Research InterestsThe study of control in nature and in medicine. Control of biological systems is naturally achieved most often by controlling how proteins move. This gives us higher order functions, such as vision, movement and growth. Now, the majority of new approvals for medicines are for protein drugs, whose be [...]

Fellow Profile

Name:Dr Eder Zavala

“Characterising the feedback control mechanisms of the glucocorticoid receptor within the adrenal steroidogenic regulatory network” July 2017 - June 2020 £414,663 I’m a physicist with a great passion for mathematical biology and biomedicine. My research interests revolve around modelling signalling pathways and gene regulatory networks, and about how the architecture of these networks affects their dynamics and robustness against noise. During my MSc in Engineering and Biomedical Physics I developed ODE models of self-regulated gene circuits, e [...]

Skills Development Fellowships

The University of Exeter is pleased to partner with the Medical Research Council (MRC) to deliver Skills Development Fellowships commencing in summer 2018.

Exeter’s priority skills themes are:

  • Mathematical modelling
  • Statistical modelling and methodology
  • Computational modelling

Exeter’s scientific themes are:

  • Neuroscience and neurology
  • Endocrinology and metabolism
  • Primary care, population health and health services research
