Biophysics is an interdisciplinary science in which the ideas and techniques of physics are applied to gain understanding of biological systems. At Guelph, we study a broad range of problems in biological and medical physics including fundamental aspects of protein structure and function, the physical properties of cell membranes and protein:membrane interactions, assemblies of macromolecules, and non-invasive elemental analysis medical applications. Guelph biophysicists make use of the most up-to-date techniques available, including neutron scattering, nuclear magnetic resonance, X-ray diffraction, vibrational spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and molecular modeling.
