Life in the Department


Welcome to a modern physiology department with outstanding strengths in molecular, cellular, integrative and translational research that is a dynamic part of the largest medical school in the United States. We have an internationally recognized team of faculty and students dedicated to understanding how genes, proteins, organelles, cells and organ systems function in an integrative fashion. Using innovations which have emerged in recent years our research expands on the knowledge of molecular and cellular physiology to better understand how the integrative systems of the human body function in health and disease. We welcome your interest and invite you to participate in Detroit’s proud tradition of understanding, building, and repairing complex and interactive machineries.
