Kort om utbildningen

Why should a physicist study biology? As a matter of fact, they already have for quite some time. Many famous physicists, such as Richard Feynman, Wolfgang Pauli, Niels Bohr, Max Delbrück and Erwin Schrödinger to name a few, had profound interests in biological problems and some made substantial progress to specific fields such as molecular biology.Biology is increasingly becoming a quantitative science and has a range of fundamentally unresolved problems at hand, e.g. how biomolecules adopt their specific shape, how they interact in cells and how cells divide and communicate. The methods of theoretical physics, among others statistical methods, modeling and simulation, can provide a powerful toolbox for approaching many of these problems.
