Biophysics Research Laboratory


The biophysics lab has been established at Al-Quds University in 2005 with a generous fund from the DFG of the Federal Republic of Germany. The lab has supported several research students in the fields of physics and biology; several of whom are currently finishing their Doctorates degrees in Germany and the U.S. The research lab provides services to students and faculty members in the physics, biology, chemistry, and environmental science programs, in addition to an open cooperation with the college of medicine, pharmacy and the Nanotechnology center.
