The Biophysics Program at University of Maryland aims to train graduate students in the use of theoretical, computational, and experimental methods to gain quantitative insights into biological systems. The post genomic era is bringing tools for unprecedented characterization and control of living systems.
To fully harness these tools for quantitative insights in biology, biomedicine, and bioengineering requires expertise from a number of disciplines. Thus our program includes faculty from Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Materials Science and Bioengineering. The Biophysics Program is open to students with undergraduate degrees in chemistry, physics or biology as well as students with majors in mathematics, computational science or engineering. Because student backgrounds are diverse, we tailor the curriculum to suit the needs of the individual.
