For example, physicist Richard Feynman theorized about the future of nanomedicine. He wrote about the idea of a medical use for biological machines see nanomachines. Feynman and Albert Hibbs suggested that certain repair machines might one day be reduced in size to the point that it would be possible to as Feynman put it " swallow the doctor ".
Some of the earlier studies in biophysics were conducted in the s by a group known as the Berlin school of physiologists. The popularity of the field rose when the book What Is Life?
Since , biophysicists have organized themselves into the Biophysical Society which now has about 9, members over the world. Some authors such as Robert Rosen criticize biophysics on the ground that the biophysical method does not take into account the specificity of biological phenomena.

While some colleges and universities have dedicated departments of biophysics, usually at the graduate level, many do not have university-level biophysics departments, instead having groups in related departments such as biochemistry , cell biology , chemistry , computer science , engineering , mathematics , medicine , molecular biology , neuroscience , pharmacology , physics , and physiology. Depending on the strengths of a department at a university differing emphasis will be given to fields of biophysics. What follows is a list of examples of how each department applies its efforts toward the study of biophysics.
This list is hardly all inclusive. Nor does each subject of study belong exclusively to any particular department.
Each academic institution makes its own rules and there is much overlap between departments. Many biophysical techniques are unique to this field.
Research efforts in biophysics are often initiated by scientists who were biologists, chemists or physicists by training. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

J Electroanal Chem. Molekuliarnaia Biologiia. In Russian, English summary. Cotterill Sneppen K, Zocchi G Skickas inom vardagar specialorder. Incorporating dramatic recent advances, "Methods in Modern Biophysics" presents a fresh and timely introduction to modern biophysical methods. This innovative text surveys and explains the ten key biophysical methods, including those related to biophysical nanotechnology, scanning probe microscopy, X-ray crystallography, ion mobility spectrometry, mass spectrometry, and proteomics.
Containing much information previously unavailable in tutorial form, "Methods in Modern Biophysics" employs worked examples and more than illustrations to fully detail the techniques and their underlying mechanisms. The book was written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, researchers, lecturers and professors in biophysics, biochemistry, general biology and related fields.
