Medical Physics and Biophysics

The Division of Medical Physics and Biophysics is part of the Gottfried Schatz Research Center for Cell Signaling, Metabolism and Aging. Biophysics is an interdisciplinary biomedical discipline that significantly contributes to expanding the understanding of pathophysiological processes and establishing new medical diagnostic procedures and therapies in basic research as well as applied research. The main goals of biophysics are to obtain a quantitative understanding of biological processes, to predict their progression and to develop methods that have a precise influence on them. At the Division of Biophysics, we investigate the basic mechanisms of human pathophysiology in close cooperation with other experimental and clinical disciplines with a special focus cardiovascular disease and tumors. Interdisciplinary concepts of biophysics provide a valuable basis for current research-led teaching in the medicine diploma program and the doctoral program.
