Graduate Program

The Graduate Program in Physiology and Biophysics is an interdepartmental Ph.D. program that trains highly qualified students for successful careers in research, teaching and industry. All students are supported by stipends and tuition waivers throughout their graduate training. A high faculty to student ratio assures that each student receives individualized help from the faculty together with access to the latest scientific instrumentation.

Student training is enhanced by research seminars and student-oriented discussions presented by world-renowned visiting scientists, as well as by participation in research seminars and research discussion groups. We seek to provide a congenial and supportive environment in which each student develops to the fullest their abilities to reason critically, design and conduct incisive experiments, and communicate research results effectively in both written and oral formats.

Our graduate program is a research program with specialties covering all levels of physiology and biophysics including:

  • Ion channels and transporters
  • Molecular structure and modelling
  • Electrophysiology/Neurophysiology
  • Sensory Mechanisms
  • Signal Transduction
  • Neuroimmunology
  • Muscle Physiology

Students interested in the Graduate Program in Physiology and Biophysics are encouraged to make preliminary contact with the Graduate Program Director  and/or Coordinator at any time during the year.
