Welcome to The Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (CTBP), an NSF-sponsored Center, has been founded on the campus of the University of California, San Diego as a partnership between UCSD, The Scripps Research Institute, The Salk Institute for Biological Studies and the San Diego Supercomputer Center..
The CTBP encompasses a broad spectrum of research and training activities at the forefront of the biology-physics interface. Its main mission is to conduct and foster research aimed at providing a quantitative framework for unraveling the workings of complex biological processes. New multi-investigator “synergy” projects are underway focused on three major topics: structure and function of large-scale molecular machines, intracellular signaling processes and cellular response, and the evolution and functioning of genetic regulatory networks. In addition, the CTBP support ongoing research on a wide array of biological physics issues. These currently include Molecular Biophysics: protein folding, protein-protein and protein-DNA interactions, ligand-binding and drug design; Statistical Biophysics: genomics, laboratory-scale evolution of molecules and microorganisms, analysis of expression array data; Cellular/Developmental Processes: nonlinear waves in the heart, Dictyostelium developmental and cell biology, viral dynamics in lymphoid tissue; Neurobiological Physics: learning at the synapse, waves in neuronal systems and processing of rat whiskers sensory data.
Positions at both the graduate and postgraduate level are available; in addition, the center has an active visitor program for senior scientists. For more information, please visit our website:
