University of Arizona Physiological Sciences Graduate Program

The graduate program in Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona is now accepting applications for Fall 2016.

In the Physiological Sciences Graduate Interdisciplinary Program at the University of Arizona, graduate students work side-by-side with the 65 faculty investigators from 19 different departments addressing both normal physiological function as well as disease processes in diabetes, cardiovascular disease, neuroscience, cancer, vision and respiratory disease. Faculty use innovative research techniques and experimental approaches from molecular to human studies. Physiological Sciences offers both a fully funded PhD program and a research-based Master’s program (with funded Teaching Assistantships) that emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of physiological science research. Current research topics include Cardiovascular Biology, Cellular and Molecular Systems, Endocrine and Reproductive Physiology, Neurophysiology/Neuroscience, Systems Physiology and Translational Physiology. Physiological Sciences alumni work as faculty and postdoctoral scholars at excellent universities as well as in industry, medicine and education.
