Molecular biophysics is a major program that prepares people to research and study the dynamics and interactions of macromolecules and other three-dimensional ultrastructure, the architecture of those structures, and the energy transfer in biomolecular systems.
A major program in molecular biophysics will likely include instruction in energy transduction, structural dynamics, mechanisms of electron and proton transfer in biological systems, bioinformatics, automated analysis, and specialized research techniques.
Search for colleges that offer a degree in Molecular Biophysics (use the College Search feature and enter " Molecular Biophysics " in the major search field). Read the school’s department pages, they are often loaded with useful and specific information about the field.
What can you do with a major/degree in Molecular Biophysics Studies?
As a molecular biophysicist, an individual works in a laboratory environment and conducts research to study and understand the interactions between various systems in biosynthesized structures.
Trade Associations and Professional Organizations in Molecular Biophysics Studies:
Professional associations are groups of specialists dedicated to topics in particular fields. Professional associations provide a wealth of online resources, some of which are geared specifically towards students. These organizations typically also host conferences and events, providing great opportunities for learning and networking across your field of interest.
