Research in the Weiss group addresses challenging problems at the interface of physics and biology.

The focus of our research is on a quantitative understanding of dynamic self-organization processes in living matter, e.g. complex intracellular transport processes, organelle formation and homeostasis, and dynamics and self-organization of cells during embryogenesis.

We mainly address these dynamic phenomena with advanced light microscopy techniques in combination with several simulation approaches.
