Students will use a broad range of modern methods of measurement (e.g. single-molecule measurements), analysis methods (e.g. quantitative image analysis) and theoretical methods (e.g. biological, statistical physics) to gain a sound foundation in physics, biology and materials science from the molecular, cellular and tissue-specific perspective.
- This will enable them to quantitatively understand the physics of living systems as well as refine and adapt them for technical processes.
- Students in the Physics of Life degree at TU Dresden will familiarize themselves with the fundamentals of experimental biophysics, theoretical biophysics and nanobiotechnology.
- The curriculum is divided into three semesters.
- The first and second semesters are dedicated to compulsory courses in biological physics, physical chemistry and experimental methods, principles of statistics, biochemistry and molecular biology, nanobiotechnology, molecular and cellular biophysics as well as molecular nanostructures and nanomachines in theory and experiment.
