Welcome to Biophysics Lab

Biophysics is an interdisciplinary area that studies the structure and function of biological systems from a physics and biology 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.
