The aim of the course is to enable the student to

characterize the most important physical techniques, concepts, and models used to describe biological systems and to account for their strong and weak points
account for the importance of interfaces in relation to key biomedical systems, problems, and technological applications
compose and present a talk on a topic within the broad area covered by the course

These aims are all of importance in all fields of natural sciences and pharmacy.

The course builds on the knowledge acquired in the courses in the first, possibly the second year of study of natural sciences, including pharmacy, and gives an academic basis for studying the topics […], that are part of the degree.

In relation to the competence profile of the degree it is the explicit focus of the course to:

know some the most important physical and physico-chemical techniques and concepts to characterize interfaces in biological systems.
know selected, specific applications of these techniques and concepts within biophysics, biochemistry, pharmacy, nanotechnology and biomedicine.
