Physical Biochemistry

Physical Biochemistry

Our faculty employ theoretical and experimental tools of thermodynamics, molecular dynamics, kinetics, and statistical mechanics to:

  • Understand a variety of biological phenomena at the molecular level
  • Develop predictive models that explain:
    1. biomolecular processes
    2. an expedient way to design better experiments.

Our faculty focus on:

  • Biomolecular interactions
  • Coupled biochemical and conformational change reactions
  • Membrane transport
  • Signal transduction
  • Dynamic motions of biological macromolecules
  • Protein and RNA folding
