Lists of biological physicists and biophysicists

Biological physicists are spread amongst a variety of departments. There is a good list of universities which offer programs in biological physics (along with the faculty involved) at the APS DBP site.

The area of Biophysics is mostly housed in biochemistry, physiology, radiology and medical departments. Nevertheless the biophysical society is a great source of information and maintains a list of departments with biophysics programs.
