The Molecular Biophysics Training Program (MBTP) is an NIH funded training grant. The goal of the MBTP is to provide a rigorous, dynamic and strongly interdisciplinary training program for graduate students from the departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Physics and Biology. Faculty from these departments as well as Pharmacology, Cellular and Molecular Medicine, and Bioengineering provide broad research opportunities. Students get hands on training using the numerous instruments and facilities.

Monthly Meetings 1st Tuesday of each month
