Department Description

The Center for Biological Physics at ASU conducts research into biological phenomena using the tools and methodologies of physics. Our interests span biomolecules, systems biology, and cellular dynamics. Our faculty have expertise in a wide range of experimental, theoretical, and computational methods. We collaborate widely on both basic and applied research questions - from the fundamental principles of life, to translational research in biomedicine. We have a vibrant interdisciplinary environment, centered in a dedicated and interactive physical space in the physical sciences building.

We run weekly Biophysics seminars and host workshops each year. Our Center comprises 17 core faculty members with home appointments in physics, chemistry, and engineering, many graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, a program manager, Deanna Clark. We welcome inquiries from prospective graduate students. Please contact Deanna Clark, or the Center Director, Robert Ros.
