The Dynamic Organization of Living Matter

Our purpose

Discover new paradigms for understanding life and deepen our knowledge of living biological matter

We aim to elucidate the laws of physics that underlie the dynamic spatiotemporal organization of life into molecules, cells and tissues. Our focus is to bring fundamental physics to biology for the purpose of understanding and solving biological questions.

Our research is enabled by merging theory and experiment and driven by a sparkling collaborative atmosphere in Dresden between University and non-University research laboratories.
