Modern research in Life Sciences is not anymore the domain of biologists. Advances in the field are now often through collaboration with physics approaches. Physicists interested in the life sciences need a critical mass of knowledge on
the way biological processes occur
the way of thinking and development of thoughts of biologists.
Besides discussing the basis of the life processes, and ending with the physiology of cancer, empowering the students to learn how to find information needed to understand the often exceedingly complex biological processes is a goal.
