The UAB Structural Biology Program (SBP) promotes research and education in scientific disciplines that elucidate three-dimensional structures of macromolecules as well as the subsequent understanding of their function based on this information.

aboutThe SBP consists of 27 faculty with primary appointments in 10 different departments that engage in diverse research areas that elucidate molecular mechanisms of macromolecules. In addition to the strengths of our research programs, our faculty offer a structural biology curriculum for graduate students and training opportunities for postdoctoral students.

Our goal is to engage all students in 3D structural science, whether they are interested in becoming structural biologists, or will use structural information as they pursue diverse research projects in the life sciences.
