SB3 is one of four areas of concentration within the Molecular and Cell Biology Field of Study.
We study the structure, function and interactions of biological macromolecules.




  • Prof. Eric May and Postdoc Shivangi Nangia will use supercomputer for biomolecular simulations
    Prof. Eric May and postdoc Shivangi Nangia will investigate virus infection mechanisms on world’s Fastest supercomputer for biomolecular simulations. Drs. May and Nangia have received an allocation on the Anton2 supercomputer donated to the Pittsburg Supercomputing Center by D.E. Shaw Research. The allocation was granted based upon a competitive application process which involved peer review by a […]
