The Biomedical Physics Group

The Research Group Biomedical Physics is located at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen, Germany.

Complex spatio-temporal wave dynamics underlies a variety of debilitating crises in extended excitable systems. An example are cardiac arrhythmias. This electro-mechanical malfunction of the heart is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide.

We employ experimental, numerical and theoretical techniques to elucidate fundamental molecular and dynamical mechanisms underlying cardiac fibrillation, and develop new diagnostic and therapeutic tools.
