Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics

The Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics division strives to create a research-intensive environment, providing advanced training to undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral trainees.The department aims to promote, at all levels, the understanding of the function of living systems.

  • Investigate the structure and function of cells at the molecular and even atomic level.
  • Comprehend the general laws of nature and, for physiology, how they operate in living systems.
  • Integrate the details to understand the function of the entire organism and exploit this knowledge for the betterment of human health.
