UNC Molecular and Cellular Biophysics Faculty members in general are problem-focused rather than technique focused. They are interested in a wide range of biological phenomena and/or medical problems. In order to approach these, they use whatever techniques are required and often collaborate with other labs to do so. Nonetheless, we know that graduate students are often interested in learning about specific techniques as they apply to biomedical science. For this reason, we classify our faculty here both according to the biomedical issues addressed by their research and according to techniques that they use to answer they questions they ask.
