  • 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, neuro-endocrine 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.

    If you would like to see what our department has been doing for the past year, please feel free to read our newsletter.
