Seminar Methods of Physics in Biology and Medicine

Seminar: Methods of Physics in Biology and Medicine

Sommersemester 2023

Tuesday, 18:00 (c.t.) – 19:45 h

(Starting time moved to c.t., i.e. 18:15)

(This seminar is offered every summer and winter semester.)

On 18.04.2023, there will be a meeting to discuss general questions (Vorbesprechung), no talk on this date.

This seminar will be offered in hybrid mode.

You can participate either in person in INF 223, Room number F.01.088 (first floor, please note the change compared to LSF!) or online via Zoom. The seminar will be transmitted via a room video conferencing system.

Access to the seminar room: Due to a construction site, access to the main entrance is not obvious: Please refer to the following map:

Coming from the west (point A), walk along the northern side of the building in east direction to the construction site (blue line on the map), pass on a foot path below a small construction-related temporary roof, go up the stairs to the main entrance. In the main entrance hall, go the white staircase up to the first floor. You will be directly in front of the seminar room (see red markers on the map).

Zoom access:

Meeting-ID: 880 5293 6406
