Research

Biophysics is the molecular science that applies the principles of physics and chemistry and the methods of mathematical analysis and computer modeling to explain the molecular and cellular structures and properties of specific, even single molecules of life. For several decades, Biophysics has been a center at the University of Michigan for researchers excited about applying ideas, concepts, and techniques from the physical sciences to problems in molecular and cell biology. Biophysics is a natural meeting ground for people interested in interactions that transcend the traditional boundaries between disciplines.
