MAIN AREAS OF RESEARCH
The Biophysics degree is intended for those who wish to emphasize physical principles and methods in solving bio-logical problems. Biophysics is intrinsically interdisciplinary and graduate students in the Biophysics program can choose from a wide range of research topics including biomolecular structure and function interactions, protein engineering, computational study of molecular interactions, enzyme catalysis and kinetics, membranes, ion channels and electrophysiology.
Graduate school application fee waivers are available upon request. A competitive stipend that covers tuition, fees, living costs and health insurance is provided for all students accepted into Biophysics. Graduate student support is derived from training grant stipends, fellowships, and faculty re-search grants. Support is guaranteed as long as satisfactory progress is made towards degree completion
The Biophysics Admissions commit-tee considers all aspects of a potential graduate student’s record, however the most emphasis is placed on previous research experience and a student’s personal statement of reasons for graduate study. We do not require GRE scores.
