Program Description:

The Physiology and Pharmacology Discipline of the Integrated Biomedical Sciences program integrates the study of fundamental mechanisms of normal and disease function at the molecular, cellular and organ/system levels to spur discoveries; leading to new and improved treatments for human disease.

We engage in scientific discovery to elucidate biological processes, explore the pathophysiological basis of disease and identify novel therapeutic strategies for restoring normal function.

This innovative perspective, along with a collaborative and collegial environment allows students the opportunity to do cutting-edge research that is not constrained by traditional departmental boundaries. Internationally recognized research expertise is assembled in areas of:

  • Cardiovascular physiology
  • Neurophysiology
  • Physiological basis of aging
  • Neuropharmacology and mental health research cancer pharmacology
  • Diabetes
  • Addiction
  • Pain research
