This program is jointly run by:

Biology Dept.

Chemistry & Chemical Biology Dept.


Biophysical research at Rensselaer includes the study of areas as diverse as focusing processes of the eye, electrical impedance assays of cell motility, photosynthesis, bioenergetics of Na+ transport, myosin mechanics, cellular bioengineering, biofluid mechanics. A variety of approaches, including molecular modeling, spectroscopic probes, nuclear magnetic resonance, and molecular biology are being used to study protein structure.

Biochemical research includes the application of chromatography to large-scale purification of biological macromolecules, biosensors, prebiotic chemistry, biochemical signaling, bioanalytical chemistry, glycobiology, DNA aptamers, and the catalysis and mechanisms of protein folding.
