Welcome to the Center for Molecular Biophysics

The Center for Molecular Biophysics, a collaboration between Oak Ridge National Laboratory and The University of Tennessee, Knoxville was founded in 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

"If we were to name the most powerful assumption of all, which leads one on and on in an attempt to understand life, it is that all things are made of atoms and that everything that living things do can be understood in terms of the jigglings and wigglings of atoms."
