Molecular Biophysics is an exciting interdisciplinary research area. Georgia Tech has vibrant, interactive biophysics research faculty and state‐of-the‐art instrumentation. Biophysics research projects at Georgia Tech involve investigations of macromolecular structure, function, and catalysis. A wide variety of approaches, including spectroscopy, X‐ray crystallography, cryo‐EM, microscopy, single molecule techniques, and computation are employed.

Students in the Molecular Biophysics training program may conduct thesis research with any of the faculty members listed on this site. Students receive a stipend supplement from the program.

Research may be conducted in any of the research Foci:

  • Structure, Function, and Evolution of Nucleic Acids
  • Membranes, Protein Misfolding, and Protein Function
  • Cellular Sensors and Cellular/Extracellular Dynamics
