Structural Biology


Students in Structural Biology study a wide range of problems from a structural and mechanistic perspective. The program strongly emphasizes research training. Students design their course program, typically a combination of specialized courses and core advanced courses in structural biology, biochemistry, genetics and cell biology to meet their educational goals. Research in the department includes:

A broad spectrum of biophysical techniques, including x-ray crystallography, NMR, electron microscopy, and computational methods, is represented in the department.

Students participate in an annual retreat which features research presentations by all the groups in the department. In addition, the various biosciences programs host frequent seminars at which students are welcome and encouraged to attend.
