Welcome to Mathematics in Life Sciences!

The group of Vasily Zaburdaev in the Department of Biology at FAU and at the Max Planck Zentrum für Physik und Medizin develops theoretical models which help to understand complex biological phenomena and their implications in disease. The group brings expertise in theoretical biophysics, statistical physics and numerical methods and works in close collaboration with experimental groups. Interested in organizational principles working in the range of scales from chromatin in the cell nucleus to the multicellular aggregates the group uses approaches from theory of stochastic processes to the continuum theory of active hydrodynamics. The focus is on understanding the physical mechanisms governing complex biological systems out of thermal equilibrium.
