Systems Biology & Physiology Program Retreat, January 17, 2014

Welcome to the Department of Molecular & Cellular Physiology (MCP).
Our goal is to advance the field of physiology by performing innovative biomedical research and providing our students with a challenging and supportive environment.

What defines physiology as a discipline? Looking into science laboratories at the College of Medicine, you will find many that look similar. Virtually all biomedical researchers use the modern tools of molecular and cell biology to explore questions about life. But it's the question—not the tool for answering it—that defines a physiologist. Physiologists are curious about the ability of molecules to contribute to cell function, the ability of cells to contribute to tissue function, and the ability of tissues to affect organismal function. Physiology is the science that integrates simple mechanisms into complex systems.
