Explore the inner workings of the living cell or the mechanisms of climate change using tools and methods that are inspired by a physicist’s approach to study nature.

Experience the excitement of building sophisticated instruments for looking into cells or “sniffing” at them to discover the molecules and dynamic architecture that make them tick. Participate in the development of physical and mathematical models for microscope imaging, for micro-fluidics or for dynamic cellular events. Bring to bear both the experimental and theoretical wisdom of a physicist’s view of nature.
