The “Center for Aerospace Physiology” is within the Department of Physiology & Biophysics in the School of Medicine. The collective interests and expertise comprise of multidisciplinary scientists; flight surgeons, aerospace physiologists, toxicologists and scientists at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Our researchers focus on providing answers and new strategies to enhance adaptation and augmentation of human performance for those persons living and working within austere environments.
Our partnership with scientists at Naval Medical Research Unit-Dayton (NAMRU-D) and those within the 711th wing of the United States Air Force will also provide new opportunities for students seeking research experience in Aerospace Physiology. These may consist of CWRU-based laboratory rotations, on-base internship opportunities and the option to take courses within the United States Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM).
