Please note: The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio will now be called "UT Health San Antonio."

Introduction

The Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry track focuses on the structure and function of cellular components broadly defined and provides advanced training for graduate students in the use of a broad spectrum of biophysical, biochemical, and molecular biological methods to study these cellular components.

Faculty members use quantitative and/or specialized approaches, including X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, and a variety of hydrodynamic approaches such as analytical ultracentrifugation to acquire answers to fundamental questions of the relationship between form and function; an understanding that has important ramifications for the betterment of human health.

    I chose to focus on biophysics & biochemistry in order to complement my current skill set so I can study biomedical problems in a deep and comprehensive manner. I chose the MBB department at UTHSCSA because there is a really good mix of tools and resources, and the faculty are supportive of their students.
