The Department of Physiology & Biophysics consists of world-class scientists and teachers. We are dedicated to excellence in research, training and education as we push the frontiers of scientific discovery. Join us in the joy of discovery.
We take pride in training medical, nursing and graduate students who will implement and fulfill that future. Our department provides a warm, collegial, and welcoming environment for budding scientists and established investigators alike. We work side by side investigating the physiological processes that underlie both normal and pathological human body functions.
Our internationally recognized research applies innovative experimental approaches to define fundamental molecular mechanisms within these processes as both putative points of pathological failure and potential targets for new therapeutic interventions.
