Lecture Series “Current Topics in Biophysics and Complex Systems”

We would like to draw your attention to the lecture series “Current Topics in Biophysics and Complex Systems” which is offered by the GGNB PhD Program “Physics of Biological and Complex Systems”.

This lecture series offers a broad overview of the methods used in biophysics and related disciplines

from experimental to theoretical,

from spectroscopy to whole-cell manipulations,

from microscopy and nanoscopy to the simulation of complex systems.

These “methods in a nutshell” lectures provide a unique opportunity to get acquainted with several techniques as taught by the experts.

The lecture series is open to all interested Master/PhD students of the natural Sciences and will be held in presence, a prior registration by email to is appreciated but not required.


Mondays from 10:15-11:45 am! Full program below.

Start of the series: 24th October 2022, with the first speaker: Prof. Dr. Jörg Enderlein, Third Institute of Physics, Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy


Best regards,

The PBCS Office
