The Millennium Nucleus Physics of Active Matter aims to understand, describe and predict the properties of active matter and generate a new theoretical framework for the systems out of equilibrium, whose concepts can be applied – in the future – in other fields like biophysics, medicine and nanotechnology.

The Millennial Nucleus is funded by Iniciativa Milenio of the National Research and Development Agency (ANID) of the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation, and Knowledge.
Is led by the researchers Rodrigo Soto, maría Luisa Cordero, Felipe Barra, Néstor Sepúlveda, Francisca Guzmán, and Juan Keymer, whose experience, of more than ten years, gather in the study of bacterial suspensions, microfluidics, active colloids, ecology-on-a-chip, computational simulations, and statistic thermodynamics.
The center, housed in the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences (FCFM) of the University of Chile since 2017, will expand from 2021 to Universidad Mayor and Universidad de Aysén.



These are 1-minute capsules in which, through animations and a very simple and familiar approach, we explain some of the cutting-edge researches we conduct in this center of excellence.


Podcasts of physics is a physics divulgation channel led by Rodrigo Soto, Director of the center. These podcasts are directed towards graduates and professors of physics and sciences, who can use this program as an educational and continuous update tool.
