Welcome to Institute for Biophysics


Biophysics is one of the research foci points of the department of physics at the University Bremen

There are several research groups in theoretical and in experimental biophysics. 

Research covers diverse fields from neuro-physics, theory of networks, cell motility and migration, structure and dynamics of slime molds, as well as biomineralization. Please refer to the webpages of the research groups for more information


Biophysics is a field of research in between the traditionell disciplines physics, chemistry and biology. Therefore some background in all three disciplines is necessary to understand the principles in biophysics. Since typical students will have a good background in one of these traditional disciplines, they may be weaker in the other fields. For instance physicists may not be very familiar with organic chemistry and molecular biology, whereas biologists may not be familiar with thermodynamics and measurement techniques. Therefore we have divided our curriculum in three sections: (1) core classes, (2) supplemental courses, and (3) advanced courses. Core classes are intended for all students interested in biophysics regardless of background and should be attended by everyone. Supplemental courses are meant to help certain groups of students specifically. In addition advanced courses deepen some specific aspects of biophysics.
