Seminar: Soft Matter and Physics of the Living Cells – Overview
Prof. Dr. Joachim Rädler firstname.lastname@example.org
PD Dr. Bert Nickel email@example.com
Time and place: Tuesday, 16-18 Uhr (Seminar room LS Rädler, N110)
Credits: 2 SWS = 3 ECTS
Audience: Bachelor and Master students in physics
This seminar addresses topics ranging from soft matter physics to the physics of living cells. The idea is that a master student and a PhD student will team up to present a topic on two levels; first the master student will introduce the topic on a general level (physics involved) and then the PhD student will present more special aspects from recent literature published.
Credits are awarded based on the quality of the presented talk and participation during the seminar.
List of topics (see also schedule):
I. Molecular Self-Assembly and Surface Functionalization
The physics of creating micro-arrays.
II. Mechanical Models of Cell Adhesion
III. Cell Migration and Collective Behavior
