About the Program

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.
