Jeremy Smith

Professor, Director and Governor's Chair



Jeremy Smith is director of the UT/ORNL Center for Molecular Biophysics which is dedicated to perform research at the interface of biological, environmental, physical, computational and neutron sciences.  The goal is to study and understand the function of biologically relevant molecular systems by employing supercomputer simulations in combination with biophysical experiments.
