Molecular & Integrative Physiology

Welcome to the Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology. We were one of the first physiology departments in the USA, founded in 1882, and have nurtured generations of physiologists through our research, mentoring, education, and service programs. Our faculty are leaders, evidenced by our ranking as the #2 physiology department for NIH research dollars. In addition, our academic programs for undergraduate and graduate students (PhD and MS) and postdoctoral fellows offer unmatched research training, mentoring and career development.

We coordinately invite you to read the latest edition of our department newsletter "Physiology Matters". Inside you will find a range of articles offering a sneak-peak at the cornerstones of our programs.

In an effort to protect the health of our community amid the COVID-19 pandemic and in cooperation with UM leadership, our department is exclusively carrying out critical laboratory research activities, carrying out most of our education and outreach activities online.  We will continue to review the situation in light of government and University guidance. 

Please continue to support each other, making use of the various mechanisms established for safe in person or virtual interactions as appropriate.
