There are currently six research groups at the Institute of Condensed Matter Physics. Their research focuses on investigation of structure and dynamics in soft condensed matter and bio inspired systems, using a variety of experimental, simulation based and theoretical methods.
How does ionizing radiation affect soft matter? The multidisciplinary research in our group covers many different topics which can be roughly summarized in the categories radiobiology, physics, space research and therapy. Dr. Durante heads the biophysics department at the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research in Darmstadt and holds a professorship at the Department of Physics at the TU Darmstadt.
