Special Issue on Cell Biophysics

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The last decade has brought tremendous advances in the

    methodologies that we can use to study life at the molecular

    and cellular level. The role of biophysics as a discipline has

    been central in this process. Physical measurement tools

    allow us to visualize cellular processes with a precision

    long thought impossible and physical principles guide our

    mechanistic thinking about the molecular processes underlying

    life. These methods have enabled a unique window

    into the functioning of cells: studying how they move,

    how they grow, how they divide, how they respond to their

    environment, and how they interact with one another. The

    advances in this field are not only proving catalytic for

    our basic understanding of cellular mechanisms, but are

    also feeding into developments of new diagnostics and therapies

    that are rapidly finding their way into clinic.
