Biological physics is a discipline that focuses on the physics problems presented by biological systems. It uses physics to gain new insights into biological problems. This interdisciplinary major, administered by the physics department, is intended to prepare students for study in areas of the life sciences and health professions that are increasingly technical. Examples include cell biology, neuroscience, and medical research.
