SB3 is one of four areas of concentration within the Molecular and Cell Biology Field of Study, offering both PhD and MS degrees. We study the structure, function, and interactions of biological macromolecules.
Research in SB3 focuses on the structure, function, and interactions of biological macromolecules. Faculty expertise includes structural biology (cryoelectron microscopy, NMR, and x-ray crystallography), computational biology, and advanced biochemical and biophysical techniques. Experimental systems in SB3 range from macromolecules and macromolecular complexes to organellar and cellular models.
