Institution Logo Leiden University

In this specialisation you will focus on understanding the principles, which determine the characteristics of soft materials like foam, and that of biological processes occurring in cells and tissue.
Research within the Physics and Biological and Soft Matter specialisation is typically performed at the interface of medical, biological, chemical and physical sciences.

The programme covers two themes:

* Biological Physics is concerned with physical processes of biomolecules, the emerging properties that evolve in cells, and the control of cell function by signalling.
* Soft Matter Physics concentrates on the mechanical and geometrical properties of soft media such as granular matter or foam, and on self-assembly in soft-matter systems.

Biological and Soft-Matter Physics is the right master's programme for you if you are interested in experimental Physics and applied life-science research. This programme guarantees a thorough experience at the frontline of physics research with a practical training of communicative and computer skills.
