What math and physics is needed for biophysics research? Specifically having to do with medical applications. I am undergrad student interested in physics and medicine.
I agree with Ygggdrasil. Generally, a good foundation of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics is sufficient, because that covers most of the underlying physical processes at the single-molecule level. On the other hand, if you want to go 'medical', then a good understanding of the principles underlying NMR/MRI, radiation dosimetry and imaging is more appropriate. I also agree that mastery of statistics as applied to data analysis is essential.What math and physics is needed for biophysics research? Specifically having to do with medical applications.
