About

The Biophysics program from The Ohio State University trains students to understand biological systems using the theories and methods of quantitative life science. More exactly, biophysics training involves using physics and its related sciences of physical chemistry, electrical engineering, mathematics, and computer science to research basic biological questions.

Overview

The Interdisciplinary Biophysics program from The Ohio State University trains students in quantitative approaches to cutting edge biomedical problems. The program crosses 6 colleges and comprises 83 faculty in 33 departments. 

Career prospects:

The program enrolls students with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences, life sciences, engineering and mathematics, and provides individualized course work based on each student's background and field of interest. Each student is trained in one or several world-class laboratories covering the broad range of techniques from femtosecond spectroscopy to whole body imaging, from X-ray or NMR structure determination to muscle physiology, or from computational biology to patch clamping. 

This rigorous training lays the foundation for a successful career, no matter if as a faculty member at an academic institution, CEO of a biotech startup company, or as a patent attorney.
