Biophysics and complex systems

Close

Organisation profile

We focuse on complex structures - both in living organisms and in the inanimate nature. In this context, “complexity” means that many small parts interact to create cooperative structures where new, unexpected features emerge.

This field combines elements from many parts of physics: Statistical Mechanics, Irreversible Thermodynamics, Fluid Dynamics, Quantum Mechanics as well as more mathematical areas such as Bifurcation Theory, Boundary Layer Theory and Computational Modelling.

The scientific activity in the section is divided into four main areas: Protein Physics, System Biology, Fluid Dynamics and Nano Spectroscopy. 

  • Our Protein Physics activities are concentrated at the Center for Quantum Protein, QuP. The center is funded by the Danish National Research Foundation and specializes is the quantum mechanical aspects of the structure and function of proteins.
  • The Systems Biology group coordinates BioSim, the large EU "Network of Excellence" in Bio-simulation and Drug Development.
  • The Fluid Dynamics group coordinates the efforts of the center Fluid•DTU - a joint DTU initiative in Fluid Dynamics funded by the Danish National Research Foundation.
  • The Nano Spectroscopy group is a newly started group which explores ultrasensitive spectroscopic tools and optical nanosensors for applications in biophysics, nanotechnology, biomedical research, and in nano-scale physics and chemistry.
