In the department of Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry, fundamental principles from physics, chemistry and biology are applied to gain molecular and structural insights into the mechanisms and mechanics of medically relevant biological processes. A broad range of structural and quantitative techniques including x-ray crystallography, microcalorimetry and fluorescence spectroscopy are used to study problems in exciting areas ranging from structure-aided drug design to cell signalling and transcriptional silencing.
