Student Organization

The Molecular Biophysics Student Organization aims to promote collaboration based on the interdisciplinary nature of scientific backgrounds within the group. Our organization hosts regular meetings where we discuss our research amongst members with different scientific backgrounds.

Our meetings not only focus on our research, but also on new internship opportunities, career development, and new scientific articles. We organize social events in Columbus such as trips to COSI and the Columbus Zoo.

Along with social events, we organize the Molecular Biophysics Training Program Symposium which involves hosting various speakers and guiding the scientific topics covered.

We are excited to announce that our 2019 Molecular Biophysics Symposium keynote speaker is

Dr. Dorothee Kern from Brandeis University. Her research interests and publications can be found here:

We are excited to announce that our 2020 Molecular Biophysics Symposium keynote speaker is

Dr. Catherine Drennan from MIT and HHMI. Her research interests and publications can be found here: https://drennan.mit.edu/research/

Our intended membership is graduate and undergraduate students in the life sciences who have an appreciation for both biology and the physics of life. There are no requirements or fees to join, so if interested in joining please contact the Molecular Biophysics Student Organization’s President, Kevin Walsh, at walsh.615@osu.edu.
