Principles of physics of central relevance to modern biological analysis and instrumentation are introduced with an emphasis on application in practical research areas such as electrophysiology, optogenetics, microscopy, and imaging.
- in basic physic and biophysics underlying biology and neuroscience.
- in methods used in biology and neuroscience.
Typically, students aiming for an experimental PhD project in the fields of biology, neuroscience, or close to these areas.
