Biomolecular Structure and Function Group

The Biomolecular Structure and Function Group advances new measurement methods and modeling tools for structural analysis of biomolecules and biomolecular complexes.

In collaboration with U.S. industry, government agencies, and scientific institutions, the Biomolecular Structure and Function Group develops precision measurement and modeling tools and standards to support determination of biomolecular structure, dynamics, energetics and function.  The group also advances innovative approaches for engineering biological systems to support applications in biotechnology and bioscience research.  

Our group is located at the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR), a joint institute of the University of Maryland and NIST.  For information on group activities please visit IBBR
