Biography
Biography: 

Bart Hoogenboom is a Reader at the Department of Physics and Astronomy (UCL) and  the London Centre for Nanotechnology, where he is also lead scientist for its atomic force microscopy facilities. He was initially trained as a solid-state physicist, working on correlated-electron systems and scanning probe microscopy. Since his PhD, he has gradually shifted his focus to nanoscale biological structures and processes, and currently leads a nanoscale biophysics research group.
