Sorinel A. Oprisan, Director

The mission of the Biomedical Physics minor at the College of Charleston is to provide an environment of academic excellence in the interdisciplinary field of biomedical physics. We will promote the integration of interdisciplinary academic pursuits that foster intellectual independence and student-faculty collaborative research in biomedical physics. We maintain a strong emphasis on undergraduate research as a major component of science education, consisting of experimental and theoretical/computational biomedical physics in various specialized subfields of classical and contemporary biophysics. Our course offerings, research programs, and faculty composition are centered on the needs of students. Our faculty maintain strong ties to professional organizations and journals in the discipline. We strive to serve the greater Charleston community through activities, including outreach to pre-college students and the general public.
