Biophysics and Fluids

Biophysics and Fluids

This study line has focus on physics and nanotechnology in biophysics, fluids, and biomedical engineering, often with applications in life science and health technology. Topics include physics of fluids and soft matter, microfluidics, biomimetics, and quantum bioengineering as well as sensing and handling of micro- and nano particles in biomedical lab-on-a-chip technology.
