Research toward a doctoral degree in physiology leads to competency in at least one of several domains focused on cardiopulmonary pathophysiology, involving tissues such as lung epithelium, airway smooth muscle, pulmonary and bronchial blood vessels, lung interstitium, and immunologic cells. Students develop knowledge and expertise in general subject areas relevant to structure/function relations in human and animal models, including genetic and environmental factors underlying susceptibility to asthma and emphysema, contemporary imaging technology, and writing scientific papers and grant proposals.
