The Molecular Biophysics Training Program at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign


Modern, well equipped laboratories are maintained for all faculty on the Molecular Biophysics Training Grant. Design and construction of state-of-the-art equipment are on-going traditions in the program (for further information, see under individual faculty and lab home pages). In addition, the University houses national centers for NMR and ESR spectroscopy, for magnetic resonance imaging, for fluorescence and for Computational Biology. The Biotechnology Center, contains a Genetic Engineering Facility, a Center for Electron Microscopy, a Flow Cytometry Facility, the Immunological Resource Center, a Transgenic Animals Facility, and a Fermentation Facility. Easily accessible departmental and University computer facilities, include state of the art molecular graphics display facilities, and work station suites. Molecular Biophysics faculty actively contribute to the growing interface between biology and computational sciences through interaction with the National Center for Supercomputing Applications and the Beckman InstituteThe University Library is the third-largest public university library in the nation, and the Biological Library maintains an excellent collection of books and current research journals.
