Research in Medical Biophysics Publications focuses on the application of physics in the human body and those of higher animals while examining topics such as blood flow, orthopedic mechanics, medical imaging and cancer biology. Research is conducted in partnership with clinicians at state-of-the-art facilities located at Western University, London Regional Cancer Program, Lawson Health Research Institute, Robarts Research Institute, and the London Health Sciences Centre.
