Current Research

Manu Prakash is a biophysicist who studies simple animals to better understand how a small collection of cells gives rise to a multicellular organism. He develops new imaging tools and techniques based on soft matter physics that aid in his quest to understand the origins of complex behavior in simple animals. Along the way, he is also developing novel tools for "frugal science" applied to global health and democratizing access to scientific experience.
