Abstract: Biophysics is an effervescent scientific field where scientists from many areas including chemistry, physics, zoology etc, use their skills to explore and develop new tools for understanding how the life sciences work. The objective of this paper is to present the preliminary results and to identify the growth and development of Indian research in Biophysics. The data was collected from Online Union Catalogue of Indian Universities. The catalogue has 4,36,967 Ph.D theses from 317 Indian universities. Indicators regarding the distribution records of Biophysics thesis, as well as the subject, supervisor, top University, state wise, keywords was analyzed with modular Scientometrics information system. The data comprises of 569 theses out of which the majority was from West Bengal followed by Karnataka. The most contributor departments were Biophysics followed by Physics Index Terms:
