Physics is the quantitative study of nature, with an impulse towards control and simplicity. Biological physics (or physical biology or biophysics) is that study of biological systems.  There are a growing number of biological physicists in Canada, applying their quantitative techniques to biological systems. Below are researchers with primary appointments in physics departments, but also researchers in other departments with physics training and/or taking a physics approach. Contact them for summer undergraduate research (USRA), for MSc or PhD graduate work, for postdocs, or for seminars and collaborations!  To add someone to the list, please email andrew.rutenberg@dal.ca.
