    Kudos
     We would like to recognize Dr. Rugmani Padmanabhan Iyer for her new grant from theAmerican Heart Association. This grant is entitled, "MatrixMetalloproteinase-12 Roles in Cardiac Remodeling Post-Myocardial Infarction.” It will enable Dr. Iyer to study how, after a heart attack, the protein MMP-12 works with other proteins within the left ventricle as its ability to function declines. By determining how these proteins interact at this point, and the effect this has on the left ventricle, our ability to work towards new ways of preventing and treating heart attacks is increased.

  • Physiology and Biophysics

    Welcome to the Department of Physiology and Biophysics. Our primary mission is to maintain the highest possible level of productivity and excellence in teaching, research and service programs to the University of Mississippi Medical Center and to the national and scientific community.

    We use an integrative approach to study cardiovascular, renal, neuorendocrine and metabolic systems in normal physiology and certain diseases. Our graduate program contains a strong emphasis on research and on integrating whole animal physiology with genetics, molecular and cellular biology. Our graduate program has outstanding mentoring and provides highly qualified students the opportunity to obtain a PhD or MD/PhD degree.
