PhD in Medical Biophysics Charles University First Faculty of Medicine
The study program Medical Biophysics is an interdisciplinary branch of science that employs virtually all biological fields and is focused on scientific study and independent research activities in interdisciplinary settings, from natural science up to clinical medical work. This branch of science originated from the need to separate medical applications observing interactions of physical fields and radiation with a living organism from the bulk of technological and biological disciplines.
According to article 3, paragraph 1, second sentence of the Code of Admission Procedure of Charles University, this program of study is offered without specialization.
The goal of the study of Medical Biophysics is understanding basic biological processes for development in innovative methods and/or devices for clinical application in diagnosis and therapy. Doctorands, further to their Master's education, are recruited for scientific and research projects at the training institutions and motivated by their Supervising Tutors to solve scientific and research problems of their own. In keeping with the recent developments, the program Medical Biophysics is also focused on the interconnection of the studies with the needs of clinical practice.
Doctoral (Ph.D.) study program Medical biophysics is an interdisciplinary branch making use of the cooperation within the framework of basic science research in biology and medical clinical practice. Student education is focused on the relation between physics and medicine. Attention is paid to the knowledge of diagnostic and therapeutic methods, studies of physical processes on biological membranes, mathematical modeling of biological processes, biomechanics, biosignals, and also to the biophysical effects of electromagnetic radiation.
