Biofisika - Basque Center for Biophysics

The Biophysics Unit (UPV/EHU, CSIC) is a joint Research Centre of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). BIOFISIKA is a joint trade name for the Biophysics Unit and its collaborator Fundación Biofísica Bizkaia. BIOFISIKA is located at the Leioa Campus of the University of the Basque Country (Universidad del País Vasco/Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea, UPV/EHU). Its mission is to promote a multidisciplinary program in frontier research and translational excellence at a molecular and cell level in the field of biophysics and their application in the areas of biotechnology and health. The Centre aims at serving as a channel for bringing the interest of basic research in biophysics closer to the productive and service sectors of our society. The R&D programs of BIOFISIKA are grouped in two main Research Lines (Molecular Bipohysics and Cell and System Biophysics) and five Research Sublines. This rational combination of independent group abilities and skills in supplementary fields contributes to reduce scientific dispersion and undertake more ambitious and complex research projects. The distribution of the research groups in the different Research Lines respond to the will of BIOFISIKA to create a unique Research and Training program able to exploit all the singularities present in the Center, fostering the complementarities and synergies of the different groups.
