Welcome to the Graduate Program in Biophysics of the Institute for Physical Science and Technology.

The Biophysics Graduate Program brings together faculty from biochemistry, biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics. The aim of the Biophysics Program is to train graduate students to use theoretical and computational methods in combination with cutting edge experimental techniques to solve some of the outstanding problems in biology, biomedicine, and bioengineering.

We welcome students, with any background in science or engineering, who have a desire to work at the interface of several disciplines, and tailor the curriculum to suit the needs of the individual. Follow the links for more information about the Graduate Program, and details on Admission.

Share our enthusiasm in tackling the next generation of problems in the complex world of biology using novel experimental and theoretical techniques: Come to the Seminars, the Symposia on special topics, and meet our Faculty and students.
