Biophysisc Group

Biophysics is an interdisciplinary grup, we study the structure and function of biological systems from a biology and physics perspective. The Biophysics Group was consolidated in 2005
with the establishment of its laboratory at Universidad de los Andes. Initially research was focused in the study of biophysical properties of cell membranes and, with time, it expanded to include other research areas like molecular and cellular biomechanics and systems and synthetic biology. Currently, it has three full-time professors with broad research experience and a strong publication record in high-impact scientific journals.
