Physiology Graduate Training Program
Be a Part of Our Research Success
Our program is interdisciplinary in its
approach to scientific research, reflecting the breadth of the discipline of
physiology. Powerful new tools in modern biology make it possible to link the
cellular and molecular with integrative levels in physiological systems, the
cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, endocrine, neurophysiological,
gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal and metabolic systems.
This program provides doctoral training in
mechanistic studies that use these new tools to study the functions of
molecules, cells, tissues, and organ systems in preparation for careers in
biomedical research, biotechnology, and academic teaching. Students learn
through lecture courses, seminar courses, seminars by speakers from campus and
from other institutions, journal clubs and, most importantly, from their
Students in this program are encouraged to interact with other training programs and research centers to broaden their knowledge and experience. Gaining expertise in public speaking is an important component of the program.
