The Division of Biological Physics, established in 1973, is composed of individuals who are interested in the study of biological phenomena using physical approaches and in investigations into the physical principles and mechanisms by which living organisms survive, adapt, and grow. The rich phenomena of life gives biological physics a very broad scope, from answering fundamental questions about life to advancing the biomedical sciences by developing new drugs and diagnostics equipment. Members of DBIO are affiliated with a broad range of departments, including Physics, Biophysics, Biochemistry, Mathematics as well as Schools of Medicine, federal research centers, and the biomedical industry.
