Our Physiology program at Wayne State University is committed to advancing the basic sciences and providing a solid foundation of interdisciplinary education and research which prepares and enables students for the diverse opportunities available in both academia and private industry.


The Physiology program at Wayne State University specialization at the masters degree level may be undertaken in the areas of: cardiovascular and exercise physiology; cellular and molecular physiology; cellular and molecular kidney physiology and hypertension; endocrine physiology; neurophysiology; and respiratory physiology. These program specializations are available to both part-time and full-time students, in research degree programs only.

From cardiovascular disease to endocrine signaling, and from cellular transport to invasive species, our research on living organisms is at the forefront of novel discoveries to protect human health.  Our research and teaching takes an integrated approach, with methods ranging from modern molecular genetics and biochemistry (nanotechnology and proteomics) to cutting-edge in vitro (isolated cell and organ function), and normal and pathologic in function in vivo (genetically modified animal models of human diseases). 

Our faculty and students use diverse experimental systems, including cultured cells, mouse, rat, rabbit, dog and fruit fly, as well as translational studies with human subjects. Departmental coursework and available thesis topics cover neural, pulmonary, cardiovascular, muscular, renal and reproductive biology, seeking to use a molecular mechanism-based systems biology approach to understand health and disease in the human body.  We offer broad training that prepares our students and postdocs for careers in academia, medicine or industry.
