Students undertake innovative research projects in a highly collegial and collaborative environment that features state-of-the-art equipment and resources.
Areas of Research:
While providing a comprehensive training in both physiology and pharmacology, the customized curriculum also facilitates specialized training tailored to achieve individual career goals. Whereas foundational principles are conveyed through didactic courses, the curriculum also includes training in presenting research results orally and in writing, preparing applications for funding, analyzing scientific literature, and conducting research ethically and responsibly. Our curriculum offers an integrated course of study that embraces the principles of pharmacology and systems physiology and pharmacology. Students in the program learn to integrate molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, behavioral, and clinical information to investigate mechanisms of disease and responses to therapeutics.
