The study of physiology covers a broad range of investigations under
the umbrella of "how living organisms function". The PhD program in Molecular and Integrative Physiology offers a
comprehensive program of study and research opportunities emphasizing
training in molecular/genomic aspects of cell, organ and whole animal
physiology, with an emphasis on physiological genomics. The program of
study provides an outstanding foundation in physiological mechanisms at
the cellular, tissue, organ and whole animal level, and how these
mechanisms interface with molecular and genetic aspects.
Students have the opportunity to concentrate in the following areas: reproductive physiology and genomics; cardiovascular physiological genomics; endocrinology; environmental and comparative physiology; gastrointestinal and metabolic physiological genomics; membrane and epithelial physiology; neural and sensory physiological genomics.
Since MIP is a part of the Biological & Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program (BBS), applicants to the Field should follow the BBS application guidelines. MIP requires two (2) letters of recommendation.
