The application for this program opens August 1, 2021.
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.
"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."
