Organization profile

The Department of Physiology & Pharmacology strategically merges systems physiology with chemical biology, spanning from the molecule to the organism. Laboratories within Phys-Pharm carry out cellular and molecular studies, and translate them into the context of whole animal disease models. The department believes that connecting systems-thinking with cutting edge molecular tools will foster exciting science and will be critical to solving the health problems of the 21st century.
