The Department of Biophysics and Radiation Biology provides high-quality education mainly for the medical, pharmaceutical and dental training programs of Semmelweis University. In addition, the department participates in international-level scientific research, development and instrumental services.
Current research activity spans across the fields of molecular and cellular biophysics, modern spectroscopies, nanobiotechnology, radiation biophysics, and in vivo imaging. Much of the instrumentation is available to the wider scientific community as a facility service.
Medical Biophysics, Biostatistics and Informatics, and Medical Imaging Methods are instructed to medical students. Pharmacy students are taught the subject of Biophysics. For dental students besides Biophysics we instruct the Physics of Dental Materials.
