At EMBL, many groups incorporate different areas of Physics and Engineering into their research, such as biophysics, optics, spectroscopy, imaging, robotics and micro engineering. These disciplines provide enabling technology for many biological applications such as studies on the cytoskeleton and cell mechanics, structural biology, microscopy, single cell/single molecule assays and high-throughput screening. Therefore, EMBL offers the unique opportunity to be involved in highly interdisciplinary projects in the life sciences.
