Welcome to the web pages of the Chair for Experimental Physics I
Research in the Weiss group addresses challenging problems at the interface of physics and biology. The focus of our research is on a quantitative understanding of dynamic self-organization processes in living matter, e.g. complex intracellular transport processes, organelle formation and homeostasis, and dynamics and self-organization of cells during embryogenesis.
We mainly address these dynamic phenomena with advanced light microscopy techniques in combination with several simulation approaches.
Lab space and technical personnel are shared with the biophysics group of Prof. Holger Kress.
