The nature of our Universe
Biophysicists have changed history
“Biophysics is the crossroads where
is determined by
the laws of physics.
and continue to shape the world.
You could be one of them.
- Walter Perkins, Insmed Inc.
all the interesting science intersects…”
Life is no exception.
Who thought that electromagnetism is behind thought?
an interdisciplinary frontier of science
in which the
knowledge and techniques of physics
are applied to learn how
living things function.
What is Biophysics?
Biophysicists connect the dots!
Who thought that quantum physics and magnets could save lives?
Who bothered to listen to ears?
Who realized that fluid dynamics could explain how eagles soar?
Advances lead to
new methods and technologies
for the betterment of humanity.
That’s where we come in.
For undergraduate students, the University offers an elite
four-year broad-based interdisciplinary program in biophysics that rockets
students to the edge of human understanding.
Students are rigorously trained in biology,
chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computing, and are
challenged to apply powers of lateral thinking to gain a deep understanding of life's functions.
York University trains the
For graduate students, the University offers both M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees supervised by world-renowned scientists working in domains spanning the microscopic to the macroscopic, including bio-acoustics, medical and biologically-inspired imaging, cellular and protein biophysics, and micro-fluidics..
