Centers in the Department of Biophysics
The mission of the National Biomedical EPR Center, directed by Dr. James S. Hyde, is to make advanced EPR research resources available to investigators nationally, regionally, and locally. Grant No. P41 EB001980 from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB/NIH) provides core support in five areas:
Technical Research & Development
The purpose of the Free Radical Research Center, directed by Dr. Balaraman Kalyanaraman, is to promote and stimulate free radical research at MCW, to help acquire increased NIH and other extramural funding for MCW researchers engaged in free radical and nitric-oxide-related research, and to promote increased collaborations in free radical research between basic scientists and clinical researchers.
The Bioenergetics Shared Resource is dedicated to cancer research through the utilization of cutting-edge technology to advance the field. The resource focuses on using in vitro techniques to measure different metabolic rates and to develop new drugs in cancer cell treatment.
Biophysics faculty participate in these MCW research centers as well:
