The Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry discipline of the Integrated Biomedical Sciences program focuses on the structure and function of cellular components broadly defined and provides advanced training for graduate students in the use of a broad spectrum of biophysical, biochemical, and molecular biological methods to study these cellular components.

Faculty members use quantitative and/or specialized approaches, including X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, and a variety of hydrodynamic approaches such as analytical ultracentrifugation to acquire answers to fundamental questions of the relationship between form and function; an understanding that has important ramifications for the betterment of human health.
