The Program in Biophysics (BPY) is intended to facilitate graduate education at Princeton at the interface of the physical and the life sciences.

The Program in Biophysics (BPY) is intended to facilitate graduate education at Princeton at the interface of the physical and the life sciences. Administered from Lewis-Sigler Institute, Biophysics is a collaboration in multidisciplinary graduate education among faculty in the Institute and the Departments of Chemistry, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Computer Science, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Mechanical Engineering, Molecular Biology, Neuroscience, and Physics. The program encompasses the full range of biophysics research at Princeton: from molecules to animals and cells to ecosystems, including work in both experiment and theory.

Open House: We welcome prospective Ph.D. applicants interested in these areas of research to register for our open house on November 8th, 2023, 3PM ET. This virtual event will include a program and research overview, faculty panel, a guide to applying to graduate school, and a graduate student panel. We strongly encourage prospective Ph.D. applicants from historically underrepresented groups in STEM to attend and learn about QCB and BPY at Princeton. Please see our event page for details!
