Biophysics would like to welcome the incoming class of 2014! 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!
Three Biophysics faculty members - Aleksei Aksimentiev, Sharon Hammes-Schiffer, and Klaus Schulten - were recently awarded Blue Waters Professorships. These professorships will allow them significant additional resources on Blue Waters, one of the world's most powerful supercomputers. The professors will present their works in a lecture series to be announced at a later date.
