The Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (CTBP) is one of nine Physics Frontiers Centers established by the Mathemathics and Physical Sciences Directorate of the National Science Foundation. CTBP represents a collaboration between UCSD and The Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and is housed on the campus of the University of California, San Diego.

CTBP encompasses a broad array of research and training activities at the forefront of the biology-physics interface. Research within CTBP focuses on the following broadly defined areas: Cellular Tectonics Gene Regulatory Networks, and Computational Approaches to Intracellular and Intercelllular Communication

Our mission is to conduct and foster research aimed at providing a quantitative framework for unraveling the workings of complex biological processes.
