Welcome to Systems Biology and Physiology

Systems Biology and Physiology at UC is an interdisciplinary graduate program comprising faculty and staff from 18 departments within the Colleges of Medicine, Engineering, and Arts and Sciences.

Our graduate students are a diverse group of international scholars focusing their research efforts on a wide array of biomedical topics from trying to understand normal and pathological function to development of new experimental tools and technologies. Students are paid a competitive annual stipend, currently $30,000.

Program participants are encouraged to embrace multi-faceted experimental approaches, making full use of the world class laboratory, computational, and clinical infrastructure available at UC.

The intellectual and physical resources of the program are specifically focused on five interrelated areas of excellence:

  • Biocomplexity
  • Dynamic Function
  • Intravital Imaging
  • Model Systems
  • Translational Physiology

Program faculty and scientists frequently engage in research spanning several of these groups.

Coursework, seminars, laboratory rotations and other activities are tailored to the particular needs of each student and are designed to support the Program’s mission to develop talented scientists capable of advancing biomedical discovery in the “post-genomic” era.
