Biophysics Research for Baltimore Teens paid internships provide hands-on research opportunities for Baltimore City high school students. Internships are five days a week for six weeks, from mid-June though mid-August.
Do you love learning about science? Are you curious about the mysteries of life around you? What’s there, how it works, and how it got that way? Scientific research can help us answer those questions.
Biophysics addresses the mysteries of life using all of the methods available to us in biology, chemistry, physics, and computer science. Biophysicists apply a quantitative perspective, often using sophisticated instrumentation such as x-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy, to the study of biological problems.
Biophysicists are on the forefront of solving problems raised by the sequencing of the human genome—from understanding how diseases work on the molecular level to developing new biofuels and methods to clean the world’s water supply to designing new drugs to cure malaria, HIV, and cancer.
