- PhD in Physiology
- MS in Physiology
The major research in this department includes endocrinology, exercise science, neurophysiology, and pulmonary and sensory physiology.
Since a number of the Physiology faculty hold primary appointments in clinical departments, the Physiology program is an ideal vehicle for students looking to apply basic science research techniques to clinically relevant biomedical problems such as bone tumors, diabetes, osteoporosis, kidney disease and lung disease.
Experimental approaches range from studies on whole animals and isolated tissues to studies of cellular and molecular events.
Scientific inquiry may include the complex interactions of systems in the whole individual, the orchestration of processes integrating organ and cell function, and/or integration of molecular events within individual cells.
