additional remarks Eine theoretische und praktische Einführung in die biophysikalischen Arbeitsmethoden. Du bist ein Physikstudent und möchtest einen Einblick erhalten, wie physikalische Prinzipien die molekularen Mechanismen des Lebens dechiffrieren können? Wir werden grundlegende Methoden kennenlernen und praktisch umsetzen, um Dir das Hantieren mit den Grundbausteinen des Lebens nahezubringen.

Condensed Matter

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?


Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
