Program Details

Program Description

Physiology is a dynamic life science that focuses on the study of biological systems at many levels of complexity; ranging from genes and molecules to cells and organisms. As such, training in physiology has the ultimate goal of linking molecular and cellular information to functional outcomes.

Currently, groundbreaking research and discovery in the life sciences are more interdisciplinary than ever, and students studying within the realm of physiology can expect to work with a wider range of scientists than their predecessors could ever have imagined. Recognizing this, the Cellular and Integrative Physiology Graduate Program was created. The program provides a multidisciplinary approach to modern life sciences, drawing on faculty expertise from several departments and centers in the School of Medicine to:

foster cross-disciplinary academic and research collaboration
support student mobility
encourage extracurricular participation
