The mission of the Department of Integrative Physiology is to discover and promote knowledge of how humans and other animals function at the level of cells, organs and systems. The program of study ranges from cellular and molecular observations to whole-body function and its applications to human health and disease. Students can choose from a research program that includes the study of biomechanics, cell physiology, comparative physiology, endocrinology, immunology, exercise physiology and neurophysiology.
In general, post baccalaureate programs of study are based around the research endeavors of the graduate faculty involving over 20 separate laboratories. Visit our webpage for details on each individual research lab.
