Biophysics is the field that applies the theories and methods of physics to understand how biological systems work.
Biophysics has been critical to understanding the mechanics of how the molecules of life are made, how different parts of a cell move and function, and how complex systems in our bodies—the brain, circulation, immune system, and others— work. Biophysics is a vibrant scientific field where scientists from many fields including math, chemistry, physics, engineering, pharmacology, and materials sciences, use their skills to explore and develop new tools for understanding how biology—all life—works.
Module 1A Diffusion and Osmosis
The living cell is an open system, constantly interacting with the environment, continuously transporting matter into and out of the cell through selectively permeable membrane. The module provides a fundamental knowledge of molecular transport through cell membranes. Gives an insight on the kinetics and laws governing various transport processes and its significance in biological systems.
