Theory of Condensed Matter

Theoretical Condensed Matter physics is about building models of physical processes, often driven by experimental data, generalising the solutions of those models to make predictions, and transferring the concepts gained into other areas. Theory plays an important role in understanding known phenomena and in predicting new ones.

With over seventy members, TCM is the largest university Condensed Matter Theory group in the country. Able to trace its history back for over sixty years, it has been home to many leading theoreticians.

Innovate UK has awarded a £1.6m two-year grant to Intellegens and CPI to "develop a novel machine learning-driven tool to advance oligonucleotide-therapeutic characterisation and manufacturing."

This project will use Alchemite™, developed in TCM by Dr Gareth Conduit, to improve the productivity of manufacturing oligonucleotides. Oligonucleotides are a next-generation therapeutic, and have the potential to treat many diseases, but their synthesis is challenging.
