Biological physics at interfaces is an expanding field of research where a wide variety of disciplines fruitfully cross-link. The high degree of complexity of the involved systems requires the concerted application of many different and complementary techniques. Future success relies both upon development of new instrumentation and a better interaction of material scientists, physicists, molecular biologists and chemists.
