NSF funds new 'Center for the Physics of Living Cells' at Illinois
Date:9/24/2008

raining in emerging biophysics approaches.

"It's very hard to pick up the new technology just from reading papers," Ha said. "We'll teach them step by step how to set up their own measurements."

Ha and Selvin already have edited a basic laboratory textbook on single molecule experiments, and next summer the center will offer a 10-day workshop on the subject for students and post-doctoral researchers from other institutions who are working in the field.

The diversity of biophysics expertise at Illinois has made it a resource, not only for its own researchers, but also for the larger community of physicists and biologists hoping to advance the field, Ha said.

"Our center will be a one-stop shop for the most challenging biological problems of the day," he said.

"The mission of the Physics Frontiers Centers is to advance the frontier across fields of physics as diverse as quantum optics and the physics of living cells," said Joe Dehmer, director of the National Science Foundation's Division of Physics. "Another significant impact PFCs have is to be a talent magnet for students, post-docs, and other excited young physicists. Promising young talent and new advances can be expected, and we look forward to both from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign."
