Molecular and Integrative Physiology Graduate Programs

Programs range from factors controlling gene expression to whole animal adaptations; the common thread is that all programs endeavor to understand biological function in health and disease. The program provides outstanding didactic instruction and laboratory experiences that enable students to become effective teachers and independent investigators.

The department participates in the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences at KUMC and provides research emphases in cardiovascular biology, cell and developmental biology, molecular and cellular biophysics, cellular and molecular immunology, molecular biology and genetics, neuroscience, reproductive biology, signal transduction, and cancer biology. The program is for the student pursuing the Ph.D. although the M.S. degree may be granted in appropriate circumstances. Degrees are granted to persons who fulfill all requirements.
