Education and Training

Jamal Williams.

Doctoral student Jamal Williams says our faculty have supported him in everything from thesis development, to grant submission, to searching for postdoctoral positions. “They have been instrumental in guiding my journey,” he notes. 

We are committed to promoting the success of our current and prospective students by creating a welcoming, supportive, and culturally inclusive environment that allows each individual to thrive and achieve true academic excellence.

A diverse student population is an integral aspect of developing a mindset that is open to new ideas, different perspectives, and innovative approaches to the solution of biomedical questions.

The Department of Physiology and Biophysics welcomes students with diverse cultural backgrounds and life experiences including, but not limited to, differences in race, ethnicity, nationality or place of origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, socioeconomic status, and veteran status.
