Welcome to Biological Physics

The biological physics program at Brandeis combines mathematics, physics and biology in an unusual and exciting opportunity for undergraduates. Here, early in your college career, you will be involved in significant research, working directly with world-class faculty at the forefront of this field.

This is the perfect major for the student whose abilities tend toward the quantitative sciences of mathematics and physics, but whose enthusiasm and aspirations lean toward the life sciences. Nobel laureate Rod MacKinnon, a pioneer in the field of biological physics, is a Brandeis University graduate.
