Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Physiology
The Molecular, Cellular and Integrative Physiology Graduate Group offers a comprehensive program of courses and outstanding research opportunities studying biological function by linking observations from molecules to populations of individuals. The group is composed of more than 80 faculty members drawn from 26 departments encompassed within the School of Medicine, School of Veterinary Medicine, the College of Biological Sciences, and the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. The campus wide nature of the group provides the program with exceptional diversity and opportunity for interdisciplinary collaborations that can accommodate students with a broad spectrum of interests. The intellectual freedom and breadth are reflected in the numerous areas of study available. These include general training in cellular/molecular physiology and systemic physiology, as well as more specialized fields such as cardiorespiratory physiology, comparative physiology, endocrinology, exercise physiology, neurophysiology, and reproductive physiology. As students transcend disciplines, they have the option of participating in designated emphasis programs for reproductive biology, biotechnology, biophotonics, organism-environment interactions, or translational research.
