Integrative Physiology—PhD

The PhD program in Integrative Physiology is designed for students who wish to pursue careers in academia, research or industry in the areas of integrative and exercise physiology, human biomechanics, and motor learning.

Integrative physiology studies organisms as functioning systems of molecules, cells, tissues, and organs and can be used to understand human health, disease, and performance. This program will balance applied and molecular aspects of integrative physiology in both basic and applied courses and research, with a heavy focus on physiological interactions across systems to offer a unique curriculum and research experience for students.
