Physiologists at the University of Maryland School of Medicine integrate molecular, cellular and systems biology to discover how life works. Our department has especially strong traditions in cardiovascular-renal biology, neuroscience and reproductive biology.
Our graduate students, post- doctoral fellows and faculty are working to unravel mysteries in the following areas:
- signaling in heart and vascular smooth muscle
- brain development
- muscle contraction
- cellular communication
- hormone action
- learning and memory
- salt and water balance
- synaptic transmission
We are helping to uncover the causes and mechanisms of human disease, including Alzheimer's, cancer, epilepsy, heart failure, hypertension, infertility, muscular dystrophy and stroke.
We invite you to join us and make exploration and discovery your life's work.
