About the Department

The Department of Physiology and Functional Genomics at the University of Florida is a balanced department with faculty expertise in both cellular and molecular techniques, plus organ physiology techniques. Each faculty member has an active laboratory, and new students who have not chosen an advisor have the opportunity to rotate through different laboratories during their first year to become familiar with the thought and technology of the various labs in the department.

Physiology is the study of the mechanisms of the normal functioning of the cells and organs of the body. Although traditionally Physiology was parceled into the study of various organs, research today ranges from cellular and molecular physiology to whole-animal and human physiology.

In addition to on-campus graduate studies in Physiology and Functional Genomics, we also offer distance-learning courses toward a certificate in Medical Physiology with a specialization in Cardiovascular/Renal Physiology and Pathophysiology. For more information, please see:  UF Medical Physiology Course Online.
