Welcome to the Chair of Biomedical Physics

Our mission

  • Research aiming at the development and translation of modern x-ray physics concepts to biomedical sciences and clinical applications
  • Education for Bachelor, Master, Diploma, and PhD students interested in biomedical imaging and x-ray physics
  • Technology transfer of our scientific results, skills, and knowledge to foster the development of new products, applications, or clinical procedures
