The Structural Biology and Biophysics Training Program emphasizes quantitative methods and equips students to study cell and protein structure and function using state-of-the-art instrumentation and computing. SBB-TP spans research areas from several of Case’s departments and centers: Departments of Biochemistry, Pharmacology, and Physiology & Biophysics and the Center of Proteomics and Bioinformatics. The program is open to students with a Bachelor's or Master's degree in physics, chemistry, engineering, computer sciences, mathematics or related sciences and a keen interest in biomedical research.
Qualified students receive a full tuition waiver, a stipend ($28,500 per year), and health benefits during the full duration of their studies. Students can enter this training program by admission to the Interdepartmental Structural Biology and Biophysics Training Program.
Problems in macromolecular design require a many-faceted, concerted approach that covers a broad range of disciplines, and SBB-TP has some of the top faculty in the world working on every facet.
I chose the SBB-TP program because everyone was interested in helping me succeed and reach my goals, while challenging me academically.
