Our mission is to provide graduate level research scientists with the necessary didactic training, problem solving, communication, and professional skills necessary to become future leaders in research and education.
Skills are developed through state of the art laboratory research in a broad spectrum of experimental systems from molecules to whole body physiology and pathophysiology.
Research in the Physiology program specifically addresses diseases leading to significant human morbidity and mortality including hypertension, diabetes, obesity , and stroke.
Our goals are to train independent, creative, and productive scholars in the physiological sciences and to prepare students for successful careers spanning academia, government and industry.
"Physiology is at the forefront of answering any and every question facing us along
the journey to understand health and disease. Being a physiologist to me means having
the advantage to study life using an integrative and translatable approach that starts
at the whole-body level, and then goes all the way to cellular and molecular mechanisms.
Physiology Faculty collegially guide and support our trainees to ensure their success
and development of critical thinking skills. We offer a very collaborative scientific
environment, and plenty of opportunities for professional service and career growth.
Join us and see for yourself!”
Daria Ilatovskaya, PhD
"Graduate school is where you build your work ethic and sow the seeds for your future career, which I would say requires 'Intelligent Perseverance.' Our Physiology program fosters an environment for students to develop independent thinking skills and to prepare them well for their next career stage."
"My mentor,Dr. Jennifer Sullivan, always repeats “Data is data”. She never becomes frustrated
with students for getting negative results in experiments. She is supportive and teaches
us how handle such stress."
