About the Physiology Program
The Physiology program integrates concepts and principles from all areas of medical science to understand function at the cell and molecular, tissue, organ systems and whole-animal levels. Faculty members have expertise in cardiovascular neural and endocrine physiology and collaborate extensively with faculty in other departments on campus. Students and faculty maintain a high national and international profile, with publications, awards, extramural funding and regular presentations at scientific meetings. We foster a spirit of collaboration that provides a virtually limitless ability to answer the most important questions in biomedicine.
