Genomics, Proteomics, Structural Biology, Computational Biology
Genomics, Proteomics, Structural Biology and Computational Biology
These are the cross-disciplinary training areas. Mentors in this research training area work in microbiology, biochemistry, chemistry, chemical engineering, and laboratory medicine/pathology, and use biophysical and computational approaches to foster research in microbial pathogenomics, obesity and insulin action, RNA-protein interactions, membrane and membrane-binding proteins, coagulation, enzymology, protein engineering, vaccine development/delivery, cancer biology, protein and peptide chemistry, cell adhesion, and bioinformatics. This research training area also includes mentors working in biophysical sciences, including molecular biophysics, medical imaging, magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, radiobiology, radiation physics, and mathematical biophysics and computation.
