Course development and history
The course gives an introduction to the physical principles that define the function of the biological cell.
Membranes. Electrical and mechanical properties of cells. Active and passive transport of water, ions and metabolites. Measurement techniques for cell-physical parameters.
After the course the student should be able to:

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability. The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
