Program Description:

The Graduate Program in Structural and Computational Biology & Molecular Biophysics brings together students and experts from a variety of computational, physical, chemical, mathematical, engineering, and statistical backgrounds to solve problems that can ultimately increase basic biomedical knowledge and improve human health. 

Our full-time faculty are drawn from members of basic and clinical science departments from seven institutions - Baylor College of Medicine, Methodist Research Institute, Rice University, University of Houston, University of Texas Health Science Center, University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, and University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.  Because of the interdepartmental and interinstitutional nature of the SCBMB program, students are able to take classes and work in any of our institutions.  Through the program's membership in the Keck Center of the Gulf Coast Consortia, students have numerous options for funding, including multiple training grants overseen by the Keck Center.
