Departm​ent of Physiology and Biophysics

Applying quantitative approaches to key problems in biomedical research.

The Department of Physiology and Biophysics has a long history of applying quantitative approaches to key problems in biomedical research. Our faculty use cutting-edge multidisciplinary approaches and incorporate their strengths in molecular, cellular and systems biology, electrophysiology, electrical engineering and advanced light microscopy to carry out internationally recognized research. Whereas the specific research interests of the faculty are diverse, we have in common the goal of using innovative and rigorous methods to address fundamental questions. These core bonds have led to a collaborative and supportive environment, ideal for training of graduate students & post-doctoral fellows and fostering interactions with basic and clinical researchers in other departments.

On-going areas of research span the range of molecular and cellular studies of neuronal and muscle cell function and development to systems level analyses of information processing in the brain. The individual Faculty web pages provide more and specific details of our exciting research program.
