Physiological Sciences Interdisciplinary Program

Department Website

Physiologists utilize experimental approaches at the molecular, cellular, and organ-systems level to learn how body functions work and how these functions fail in disease. At the University of Arizona, graduate students in physiological sciences work side by side with faculty researchers from a range of disciplines, conducting cutting-edge research using innovative techniques. New techniques and discoveries in the laboratory are rapidly being translated into clinical breakthroughs. This interdisciplinary graduate program involves more than 60 faculty members from 19 departments in basic and clinical sciences. The program offers research opportunities that span from the molecular and cellular to the systems levels of physiology. Students begin their research education in physiological sciences with laboratory rotations that are matched to their fields of interest in order to identify a project and faculty advisor for their research.

Application Deadline is December 1 for Ph.D, March 15 for MS.
