The Cambridge Center for the Physics of Medicine (CCPoM) is a major new expansion of research activity in the University of Cambridge. With a core hub in the Physics of Medicine (PoM) building and a focus on Biomedical research, it aims to nucleate interactions between different disciplines as well as technology development at the interface of the physical, life and clinical sciences. A major theme of the project is to foster new methods and concepts to understand the organization and function of cells and their assembly into tissues and organs.

In addition to its function as a hub, CCPoM aims to identify talented scientists with multidisciplinary skills and interests at the early stages of their career. PoM will support applications for independent career fellowships and provide space and research infrastructure.
