Biophysics

Biophysics is an increasingly popular discipline that applies the approaches and methods of physics to unravel the underlying organisational principles of biological systems. Dresden is an internationally recognized hub for scientists working at the interface between physics and biology. Research in Dresden has a strong emphasis on investigating phenomena across all relevant scales – from individual molecules, to sub-cellular organization, to cellular properties, and on to tissues, organs, and organisms. Our strength lies in the close collaboration between theoretical physicists, providing the conceptual and modelling framework, experimental groups, developing and applying state-of-the-art techniques to obtain quantitative data, and cell and developmental biologists, who contribute the necessary biological expertise.
