An interdisciplinary PhD program in biophysics involving the Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Physics and Astronomy.
The Molecular and Cellular Biophysics Ph.D. (MCB) program provides opportunities for doctoral studies in the interdisciplinary field of biophysics. Participation of faculty from the Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry & Biochemistry, and Physics & Astronomy enhances the strength and breath of our program by incorporating cross-disciplinary and collaborative approaches to research. The MCB Ph.D. program is centered on research activities that coincide with faculty experience and expertise. Areas of research in the MCB program include cellular physiology, developmental dynamics, protein folding, protein network analysis, signal transduction cascades, and the development of novel imaging techniques. Projects at the interface of traditional disciplines of physics, biology and chemistry as well as methods of mathematical analysis and computer modeling are particularly encouraged.
