Importantly, it offers students the opportunity to link academic science with laboratory applications. The result is that students should complete the program with a full understanding of the importance of physiology in the world of modern biomedicine. The underlying principle is that physiology is at the core of all aspects of the biomedical enterprise and that our students should be well prepared to participate fully in that venture.
About the Physiology program
The program in Physiology at the University at Buffalo emphasizes both extensive training in molecular, cellular, and systems physiology and intensive training in current topics in physiological research. Students can pursue research in the following areas: neurobiology, cardiovascular, cellular, gastrointestinal, and renal physiology. Students also have the opportunity to pursue collaborative research in other related departments or areas of the university.
Graduate students typically come directly from a four-year college program and usually have majored in biology, chemistry, physics or engineering, although some matriculate after having worked in industry, served in the Peace Corps, or had other non-academic experiences. Most enter the program to train for a career in research and teaching at a college or university, but graduates also find employment in government or industrial laboratories. The program also meets the needs of students seeking a career in a technical specialty or students requiring postgraduate studies prior to application to the doctoral program or professional school (medical or dental).
The goal of the MA program offered by the University at the Buffalo is to produce graduates who are well founded in the principles of organ system and cellular physiology, and are able to perform research in specialized areas of physiology.
