IMB Faculty

These eleven faculty members and their labs are housed in the Kasha Laboratory Building at the Institute of Molecular Biophysics. They are a group of scientists from the departments of Biological Science, Chemistry & Biochemistry, Mathematics and Physics who often collaborate to realize the goal of a truly interdisciplinary Institute, and all are Molecular Biophysics (MOB) Graduate Faculty.

Other faculty, whose research encompasses an area of Biophysics, are housed in other buildings in the Science Complex, with interactions and collaborations occurring frequently. They are also available to mentor to students in the MOB Program.

See the Molecular Biophysics Faculty page for a full list of Biophysics professors, their departments and their research interests.
