The Department of Biological Physics was created in
January 1998. By doing so, the physics community and
the leadership of the Faculty of Science
at Eötvös University has
recognized the increasing importance of providing
specific education in the quickly growing field of
biologically motivated physics.
Our department grew out from a seed in the
Department of Atomic Physics, where a Biophysics
Group had existed for about 25 years. Over the years
the spectrum of research and teaching activities of this
group have expanded as the need in biologically
oriented projects and courses has been steadily
increasing. Originally, the central topic was
photosynthesis and other energy converting
mechanisms, but during the 90s years several
new directions of research have been launched.
and brief desciption of the research activities at our department
can be found in the
