In the July 2015 issue of Photosynthesis Research, you can find a wonderful article on former director Colin Wraight, co-written by BIOP alumni and Emeritus Professor Govindjee. There are a lot of great photos and heart-felt remembrances from family and friends alike. http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11120-015-0174-1
Biophysics would like to welcome the incoming class of 2015! The new year is off to a great start and we hope everyone has a successful year ahead! We are glad you have chosen to make Urbana-Champaign your home for the next few years. Welcome!
We are pleased to announce that the 2015 edition of Cindy's Guide to Living (cheaply) in Champaign-Urbana is now available! Feel free to download the pdf (also located under Resources).
Congratulations to our Biophysics graduates, many of whom participated in the May 17 convocation. We are very proud of you and wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
The University of Illinois Board of Trustees recently approved a name change for the Center. Henceforth, we shall be known as the Center for Biophysics and Quantitative Biology. The new name will allow us to broaden our scope beyond the fields of biophysics and computational biology to include computational genomics, systems biology, quantitative proteomics, and synthetic biology - areas not traditionally associated with biophysics and computational biology.
Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Diwakar Shukla, and Assistant Professor of Biochemistry, Kai Zhang, were recently elected to the Biophysics faculty. Please join us in welcoming our newest faculty members!
Biophysics program receives high ranking.
