Need of physics in cell biology

Physics and cell biology used to be very distinct fields, but now a days, more and more theoretical physics oriented work force moved to this domain and life sciences, specially from statistical mechanics and complex systems point of view, and even people from string theory! A recent article that reviews this perspective appeared [link].
In the similar lines in the article [link] discussion on physics role in biology in generic terms explored. In a humorous way current funding policies are summarized : "all science is either biology or tool-making for biology or not fundable".
