About the Biophysics Community

The Biophysics Program includes Graduate Students and Faculty from across both the main Harvard Cambridge campus and Harvard Medical School campus, as well as the Longwood Medical Area teaching hospitals, Massachusetts General Hospital main campus, and Massachusetts General Hospital Charlestown Navy Yard campus, and the Broad Institute.


Appointment as a Core faculty member reflects faculty contributions to the educational mission of the program and active participation in student training events. Diversity of mentors, in terms of research topics, career stage and demographics, are also a strong guiding principle.


Additional faculty are appointed to the Program as Affiliates, who participate in the Program and whose research falls within the broad field of Biophysics.
