Welcome! Our mission is to facilitate interactions between
physicists and life scientists, and to engender
physically sophisticated research on biological systems.

We ask questions such as:

What are the forces that organize nanometer-size molecules into functioning biological assemblies?

How do living organisms emerge from constructions of inanimate molecules?

We address these questions and many others through
collaborative research, graduate and undergraduate
student training, seminars, lectures, workshops,
and a visiting researcher program.
