    Director: Theodore Wensel, Baylor College of Medicine 

    Congratulations to our winning predoctoral poster presenters at the 25th Keck Annual Research Conference, Oct. 15-16, 2015 in Houston, Texas:
    First Place: Jake Ezerski, University of Houston
    Second Place: Emily Thomas, Rice University

    The Houston Area Molecular Biophysics Predoctoral (Ph.D.) Training Program (HAMBP) is a collaborative graduate program involving biophysics faculty from six major universities in the Houston area. Advanced course work in molecular biophysics, structural biology, and other relevant areas is complemented by faculty directed research and an integrated seminar program.

    The inter-institutional nature of the HAMBP program provides a rich variety of biophysical training with ready access to state of the art resources and leading scientists at Baylor College of Medicine, Rice University, University of Houston, University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, and Texas A&M Institute of Biosciences and Technology.

    Specific research areas include: mass spectrometry, cryo-electron microscopy, raman spectroscopy, NMR of proteins and nucleic acids, X-ray crystallography, rapid kinetics, computational biology, digital imaging, fluorescent spectroscopy, protein engineering and membrane biophysics.
