Molecular & Integrative Physiology

Welcome to the Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology. Within the welcoming, supportive and collaborative community in our department, we are pursuing answers to fundamental questions in physiology as well as the mechanisms of human diseases that occur when normal physiology is disrupted. While we are proud of our ranking as the #1 NIH funded physiology department in the country, we are prouder of the impact our scientists have on their fields through ground-breaking research, education, and service. Our academic and training programs for undergraduate and graduate (PhD and MS) students, and postdoctoral fellows are focused on developing future leaders in science and medicine through engaged mentorship and a strong focus on personalized career development.

We invite you to read the latest edition of our department newsletter "Physiology Matters"(link is external). Inside you will learn more about some of the wonderful people in our department and some of our most recent accomplishments.

Dr. Longhua Guo named a 2024 Pew Scholar

Congrats to Dr. Longhua Guo for being named a 2024 Pew Scholar to support his research on the molecular and cellular processes that reverse tissue aging. The Guo lab studies freshwater flatworms called planaria are extremely long-lived and famed for the ability to regenerate missing body parts after injury, an ability that arises from the
