Molecular Biophysics seeks to understand essential biological processes in terms of physical chemistry. CUNY has over 30 faculty working in this area. Research interests include the mechanisms of signal transduction in cells, protein dynamics by neutron scattering and NMR, experimental and computational analysis of membrane protein structure and dynamics, and protein design. Students are encouraged to contact an individual faculty member to explore different research opportunities.
