The graduate program in Physiology is designed for students interested in the integrated function of living systems.
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 the integration of molecular events within individual cells.
