Structural Biology & Molecular Biophysics Training Program

Students stand in front of monitor with data on it.

Unlock the mysteries of life's building blocks while gaining key teaching skills to make a lasting impact on the world.

Our cutting-edge, advanced Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics Training Program offers you the opportunity to dive deep into the atomic world of life's building blocks while also building up valuable teaching skills.

You will play a hands-on role in both basic science projects, which delve into the building blocks of life's big molecules, and translational projects like designing drugs based on molecular structures. Plus, you'll receive training in teaching, both online and in person.

Our state-of-the-art facilities and world-renowned faculty provide you with the tools and resources needed to push the boundaries of structural biology and molecular biophysics.

The program is highly competitive and trains only five or six graduate students each year. Support is provided by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) program.
