General information

What is biophysics? Biophysics is an interdisciplinary branch of science that can be considered as a bridge between chemistry, physics and biology. The students will understand the basic principles of modern (bio)physical methods and will learn how to apply them to study living systems, from the molecular level to the level of whole organisms. Our graduates have a qualification to work in a wide range of fields, including medicine, criminology, pharmacology, ecology, agriculture, or the food industry. However, many of them also choose to continue in academic career and participate in basic and applied research in physics, chemistry, biology or medicine in the Czech Republic and abroad.

The Department of Biophysics (DBP) offers courses in Biophysics and Molecular Biophysics at all levels of university education (bachelor, master, doctoral).

Bachelor course - lasts three years (a graduate is awarded of an academic degree Bc.)
