The Program in Cellular and Molecular Physiology & Biophysics provides training in modern physiology, from biophysics and structure of proteins, to cellular metabolism, to organ system function. The main areas of focus are Cardiovascular Physiology, Structure and Function of Membrane Proteins, Metabolism and Aging, and Neuroscience.
Trainees enter their studies from a wide variety of backgrounds, contributing to a diverse and exciting environment. Students benefit from belonging to a relatively small and focused program, while having access to the entire scientific community of Columbia University.
Students who earn their doctoral degrees from the Cellular and Molecular Physiology & Biophysics program will be ideally positioned to pursue independent careers in basic and applied biomedical sciences, in academic and corporate settings. See more about the program
