The CMB will facilitate both individual and group training through personal sessions and workshops. The goal is to facilitate training of graduate and undergraduate students as well as faculty in both experimental and data analysis methods.

Workshops will take place on a monthly basis as interest and needs arise. If you are interested in a specific workshop please contact the CMB center manager, Dr. Katie Tripp

Project Development

The CMB Project Development Steering Committee, which is composed of faculty from the Biology and Biophysics departments, is intended to help non-biophysical laboratories expand into biophysics. The committee will work with researchers to help identify how the CMB resource can be leveraged into a particular project.


Center instrumentation includes circular dichroism (CD), fluorescence spectroscopy, analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC), isothermal titration (ITC), and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Together these methods can be used to obtain quantitative structural, thermodynamic, and hydrodynamic information relating to macromolecular structure and interactions.
