The school aims to provide an introductory background to german and cuban post-graduate students on theoretical and experimental techniques to study biophysical processes at the cellular level.
The school is financed by the Collaborative Research Center 1027 "Physical modeling of non-equilibrium processes in biological systems", by the Physics Faculty of the University of Havana, the Cuban Physical Society and the Cuban National Program of Basic Sciences.
