Biophysics in the MIT Physics Department

The MIT Center for the Physics of Living Systems brings together biophysics researchers from across the Department of Physics at MIT. Research is conducted in nine different groups that include a total of over 50 scientists. The field of biophysics has experienced tremendous growth and excitement in recent years, with areas of focus ranging across all scales, from the structural organization of polymers to the evolutionary and ecological dynamics of populations. Graduate students and postdocs in the Center benefit from an interactive and supportive intellectual community, and the Center collaborates with the wider biophysics community at MIT to bring researchers together via:
