Biophysics Research

Biologists and physicists at Princeton have always found common ground—the laws of physics are essential aspects of biology. The interface of these two disciplines was obvious from the beginnings of molecular biology. Today, because technology advances in imaging enables the study of single cells and single molecules, biologists are finding new reasons to work with physicists. The Department of Molecular Biology has a long-standing interaction with the Princeton Physics department, which has decades-old traditions of excellence and leadership in the core areas of fundamental physics. Interactions among biologists and physicists also occur in the Lewis Sigler Institute, where theory and experiments meet with often spectacular results.
