Please note: The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio will now be called "UT Health San Antonio."
The Physiology and Pharmacology Discipline integrates the study of fundamental mechanisms of normal and disease function at the molecular, cellular and organ/system levels to spur discoveries; leading to new and improved treatments for human disease. We engage in scientific discovery to elucidate biological processes, explore the pathophysiological basis of disease and identify novel therapeutic strategies for restoring normal function.
Students have the opportunity to do cutting-edge research within the areas of cardiovascular physiology, neurophysiology, physiological basis of aging, neuropharmacology and mental health research cancer pharmacology, diabetes, addiction and pain research.
What I love about the department and my lab are the great people I get to work with every day. Not only are the people working here highly qualified leaders in their respective fields but they are also dedicated to sharing their expertise and committed to teaching the next generations of researchers to be productive and conscientious scientists.
