Our Aims: We seek to understand living matter as a self-organizing and active form of soft condensed matter

The key objective of the Cluster of Excellence Physics of Life is to identify principles that govern the dynamic spatiotemporal organization of life at the scales of molecules, cells and tissues, by utilizing innovative experimental approaches, theoretical predictions and computer simulation. We aim to provide an understanding of how biological processes emerge from the laws of physics, to deepen our understanding of living biological matter.

We value an interactive, collaborative scientific approach that goes beyond the boundaries of scientific disciplines. Our commitment is to create an environment that thrives on open communication and diversity.
