Some Critical Questions in Biological Physics discusses 18 key questions in biological physics, each forming independent chapters that will, by presenting the research in terms of key, unsolved problems, encourage interest in the field. It also provides useful reading for undergraduate physical scientists considering a career in this area.

Some Critical Questions in Biological Physics discusses 18 key questions in biological physics, each forming independent chapters that will, by presenting the research in terms of key, unsolved problems, encourage interest in the field. Each chapter includes an introduction that is meant to be accessible to all readers followed by a section containing more technical details that may be of greater interest to specialists but still written in an accessible style. The book provides useful reading for undergraduate physical scientists considering a research career in the life science by presenting biological physics in a coherent modern framework. Additionally, it includes material relevant to medicine, pharmaceutics and biotechnology, and demonstrates biological physics with modern examples with a readily approachable style.
