Research Mission
Our research mission benefits from a rare combination of faculty who address important translational problems in physiology and biophysics across a broad spectrum of integration—from the level of the atomic structure of molecules, through living cells and organ systems, and up to the whole organism. The major programmatic foci of our research are cardiovascular, renal, and neuronal function in health and disease.
Educational Mission
Our educational mission is to utilize a rigorous curriculum with faculty advising services, access to a wide range of enrichment opportunities in Cleveland's healthcare hub community and extend it to the tremendous success of our graduates. The Physiology and Biophysics Department offers two training programs: One that leads to a PhD degree in Physiology and Biophysics that predomintantly weighs on the underlying diseases of the brain, heart, and kidneys. The second program a Master of Science in Medical Physiology was developed to help students become more competitive applicants to medical school, dental school, and other professional clinical programs.
