Research Overview


UB Biophysicists develop computational and experimental tools to investigate structure-function relationships in proteins, study the nanoscale structure of cell surfaces, and use nanotechnology to manipulate signaling deep in the brain.


Condensed Matter Physics at UB unlocks the mystery on how materials gain novel functionalities by peicing together quantum mechanical rules on complex systems.


UB High Energy Physics and Cosmology (HEPCOS) combines faculty working on the Compact Muon Solenoid detector at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN with theorists investigating frontier issues in particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology.


Nonlinear Dynamics and Statistical Physics focuses on both fundamental and applied problems involving interacting many body systems. The systems of interest are typically the ones involving strongly nonlinear forces between the entities.

Physics Publications

As a department, we pride ourselves on continually contributing to new knowledge and understanding of physics. Please peruse our list of publications to learn more about our involvement with national and international physics discourse.
