Biologická fyzika

Course: Biological Physics

Department/Abbreviation: KEF/BFY

Year: 2016 2017

Guarantee: 'doc. RNDr. Roman Kubínek, CSc.'

Annotation: Předmět je určen pro studenty, kteří mají získat či zopakovat základní pojmy spojené s aplikacemi fyziky v biologie či lékařských vědách. Budou-li se zabývat aplikacemi nanočástic ve zobrazovacích metodách či cílené terapii, je třeba, aby se orientovali právě v pojmech na úrovni struktury buňky i ve zobrazovacích metodách.
