Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology

The Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology is focused on understanding how molecular and cellular processes give rise to complex physiologic functions. 

Laboratories are using experimental technologies that range from single molecule and biophysical methods to in vivo analysis of complex physiological phenomena to study the nervous and sensory systems, the endocrine system and the tissues that govern metabolism. Our faculty, students and staff are committed members of a vibrant scientific community that fosters creativity and discovery and prepares the next generation of scientists.
