Cells and biological processes
From subcellular processes to populations, cells are fascinating and critical biological units. Physics can help understand their often complex behaviour, and can complement biological approaches. This often involves pushing known techniques to new limits, or inventing new ones. In addition, progress in understanding biology often requires new conceptual and quantitative frameworks.
