Message From The Chairman

Irving G. JoshuaDuring the last decade, new and exciting changes have developed in the area of Physiology.  In addition to a cadre of new investigative techniques, we have seen an explosion of interest in cellular and molecular research into physiological phenomena.  Our Department has successfully blended our traditional systemic research approach with many new cellular and molecular approaches to research.  In addition, we have developed strong research collaborations with clinical researchers to investigate physiological questions in areas such as hypertension, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, etc.  Our Department has a strong interest in cardiovascular research and our efforts are potentiated by research interactions with both basic science departments and many clinical departments and subspecialties.  The Department is located primarily in a modern 14 story research facility on the Health Sciences Campus.  The Health Sciences Center is a well-integrated facility of both clinical and academic entities.

We are excited about the new and innovative research approaches being explored in our Department and in the field of Physiology.  I, along with our faculty and graduate students would like to welcome you to our Website.
