Biological and Medical Physics (PHY 615, 3 credits) is a
one-semester graduate level course intended for students from
physical, chemical, and biomedical sciences. Graduate students
enrolled in the Structural Biology, Biochemistry and Biophysics
Program (SB3), or those from the Biotechnology and Biomedical
Sciences Programs (SUNY-ESF) are very welcome. Note that this is not
a course to teach either "biology for physicists" or "physics for
biologists." Instead, the emphasis will be on selected "hot topics"
that lie at the interface between physical, chemical, and biomedical
sciences. The primary aim is to have an overview of fundamental
biophysical research questions, as well as recent experimental
developments and techniques that engage multidisciplinary efforts.
In addition, we will discuss "applicative topics" of biological
physics in several realms, including nanobiotechnology, biosensors,
drug delivery, and medical imaging. Therefore, much of the content
of PHY 615 will be presented in a nontraditional manner. Finally, from
a practical point of view, the Biological and Medical Physics course
will establish strategies for people with complementary backgrounds
who are working, or who intend to work, in multidisciplinary areas.
