Understanding life’s building blocks
We’ll help you find out what you’re made of. In the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, we’re dedicated to studying biological systems, including how cells, tissues and organs function. It's the foundation upon which we base our knowledge of what life is.
Interested in a master’s or a doctorate? Choose from five areas of research concentration:
- cardiovascular physiology
- endocrinology and neuroendocrinology
- molecular and genetic physiology
- respiratory physiology
You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside investigators as they explore the mechanisms and integration of cellular functions in tissues, organs and systems, using advanced techniques in:
- molecular biology
- computational modeling
Maybe you’re not ready for a master’s yet? Develop a solid base of knowledge with our undergraduate classes.
