"This book fills a gap that affects students from different branches that require up-to-date information on biophysics," said Professor Ramírez. He said that the Area is filled with satisfaction that one of its professors publishes a book for teaching.
When making the presentation of the work, Professor Javier Maimón explained that it is the result of long hours of research, study and analysis. He stated that Biophysics is a relatively new discipline and therefore somewhat unknown, but highly disciplined.
