The mission of the Kasha Laboratory is to conduct research and train students at all levels in a multi-disciplinary environment with the primary unifying theme being the use of biophysical, biochemical, and computational tools to study macromolecules and their assemblies.
The Kasha Laboratory is home to 11 core faculty having primary appointments in the Departments of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Biological Science, Mathematics, and Physics. Research in the Institute centers on Structural Biology and Computational Biophysics. Research and training in the Kasha Laboratory is supported through several Core Facilities staffed by research faculty.
The Laboratory administers the Graduate Program in Molecular Biophysics (MOB). The MOB program provides graduate training for a small number of highly motivated biology, physics, engineering and chemistry students who are eager to take advantage of the interdisciplinary research environment provided by the Institute.
