PhD in Biophysics
Biophysics interdisciplinary graduate program offers unique flexibility and emphasis on multidisciplinary, research-intensive graduate education. Recruits come from a range of backgrounds: from pure physics, chemistry, or biology to math or computer science. The curriculum for each doctoral student because is based on their own interests and career goals. Areas of emphasis range from Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics; Cellular and Integrative Biophysics; Magnetic Resonance and Imaging; and Bioinformatics and Spectroscopy. The formal Biophysics curriculum currently consists of two, 3 credit courses (required) taken during the first year and a seminar course (required) for the entire graduate education in biophysics. Most of the additional biophysics courses are taught as part of curriculum in departments across campus.
