Integrative Physiology (Formerly Physiology and Developmental Biology)

The Integrative Physiology program studies the processes that occur within all living organisms including the regulation of functions at the subcellular, cell, tissue, organ and whole organism levels, as well as their interactions and integration. Courses also address how internal and external factors affect physiology across different taxonomic groups. Students have the opportunity to study a diverse range of topics such as endocrinology, neurophysiology, developmental biology, immunology, cell signaling, toxicology, and environmental physiology in a wide variety of organisms.

Effective 2018, this program was renamed to Integrative Physiology. Please see program planners to the right for course requirements. The renaming of the program means that we will no longer be admitting students into the Physiology and Developmental Biology Program. Rather, students will only be admitted into the Integrative Physiology Program. Students who entered program prior to 2018 will graduate with a degree in Physiology and Developmental Biology. Students who entered the program after that will graduate with a degree in Integrative Physiology.
