The Graduate Training Program in Structural and Computational Biophysics (SCB) is designed to meet the need for next generation scientists and educators with broad, interdisciplinary training in the quantitative biological, biochemical, and biomedical sciences. Students who successfully complete the SCB Track and degree requirements will receive a certificate in Structural and Computational Biophysics, as well as the degree in the program in which they matriculate. The Track is implemented by collaboration among the programs of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Molecular and Cellular Biosciences and Physics at Wake Forest University.

The SCB training program is designed to prepare students for careers in academic research, teaching, biotechnology, or the pharmaceutical industry. Students can obtain a PhD in Biology, Physics, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, or Chemistry, or a M.S. degree in Computer Science or Mathematics. We encourage applications from underrepresented minorities and students with disabilities. As part of the training program students receive customized coursework designed for researchers at the interface of Biophysics, Structural Biology, Mathematics, Biology, and Computer Science. Students also interact with a diverse and interdisciplinary team of investigators to carry out cutting edge research. Students are supported with stipends, tuition costs, and a laptop computer. Exceptionally qualified students have the opportunity to be supported through the NIH-T32 training grant.
