Physical, Mathematical and Computational Biology

Rockefeller’s physicists and mathematical biologists are creating a dynamic interface between physical and biological disciplines. The university’s Center for Studies in Physics and Biology promotes experimental collaborations to study both the physical properties of biological systems and the application of physical techniques to the modeling of biological networks. Physics laboratories are also studying systems theory, biological statistics and probability, population dynamics and sensory processing, among other
subjects. The university also has laboratories conducting research in high-energy particle physics, bioinformatics, computational neuroscience, systems and quantitative biology, networks and synthetic systems.
