Department of Biophysics & Biophysical Chemistry

For more than 40 years, this department has applied quantitative biophysical methods to the analysis of macromolecular structures and biological systems. Faculty members use a wide range of research tools, including X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and fluorescence spectroscopies, computer modeling and theory, and structure-activity studies. Researchers investigate enzymes, antibodies, cell-surface receptors, ribosomes, data from the genome sequencing project, and DNA-, RNA- and metal-binding proteins. Faculty members are associated with the Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology Graduate Program and the Program in Molecular and Computational Biophysics.
