Welcome to the Center for Molecular Biophysics


The UT/ORNL Center for Molecular Biophysics exists since 2006. We perform research at the interface of biological, environmental, physical, computational and neutron sciences. Our goal is to study and understand the function of biologically relevant molecular systems by employing high-performance computer simulations in combination with biophysical experiments
