The Department of Biophysics at the Medical College of Wisconsin is dedicated to quality in research and graduate and postdoctoral training. The research interests of our faculty are broadly based, with strong programs in:

  • Free radicals and nitric oxide
  • Spin-labeling and protein structure
  • Paramagnetic metal ions: A structural determination of active sites
  • EPR instrumentation
  • Functional MRI (fMRI) 
  • Molecular imaging
  • Research on drugs of abuse
  • Statistical methods in fMRI

Biophysics Graduate Program

The Biophysics Graduate Program is designed for those young scientists who wish to develop research skills to use in academic and clinical settings.
