The Biological Physics Group

The researchers in the Biological Physics Group apply both experimental and theoretical techniques to study the physics of biological matter, living systems, and biologically-inspired physical problems. This research covers a wide spectrum of fields, from elements of traditional soft-matter physics all the way to the examination of genetic and neural networks.

We are situated in both the Physics and Chemistry Faculties of the Weizmann Institute, and further collaborate with research groups in the various Biological departments. The interdisciplinary environment of our institute is very helpful for such collaborations, which extend the boundaries of physics into the domain of biology.
