Biological Sciences

Physiology and Developmental Biology (Integrative Physiology)

This area of biological sciences studies the processes that occur within all living organisms including the interactions between cells, tissues, and organs. Graduates from the Physiology and Developmental Biology program often find employment in medical research in either an academic or industrial setting, or in teaching at a secondary or postsecondary level. You might also enter a career involving research in a subfield of physiology and developmental biology, go on to study medicine or veterinary medicine, or work in a laboratory at a university or in private industry.

Effective 2018, this program will be 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.
