Graduate Training

The Department of Physiology has a rich tradition of training Ph.D. students to perform cutting-edge research, make significant discoveries and become leaders in biomedical science. Students who perform their Ph.D. research with Physiology faculty are typically enrolled in degree granting programs administered through the Graduate Program in Life Sciences, including programs in Molecular Medicine, Neuroscience, Toxicology or Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, depending on their research interests.

Numerous NIH-funded training programs support Physiology graduate students, including the Training Program in Integrative Membrane Biology, Interdisciplinary Training Program in Muscle Biology, Training Program in Neuroscience, and Training Program in Cardiac & Vascular Cell Biology.

An innovative graduate track in physiology is operated under the auspices of the interdisciplinary program in Molecular Medicine.
