Cellular & Molecular Physiology at Penn State College of Medicine
A compelling picture of the future we are creating in the Department of Cellular & Molecular Physiology: to be viewed as a model department in providing and integrating the education of medical and graduate students, the discovery and validation of biomedical knowledge, and the active engagement of the college, university, and professional communities that we serve.
The Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology at Penn State College of Medicine provides outstanding training opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows interested in pursuing a career in the cellular, molecular and/or metabolic aspects of physiology. The Department offers a faculty of international reputation along with modern, well-equipped laboratories in a beautiful setting conducive to outstanding academic achievement and research productivity.
The research laboratories of individual department faculty members encompass a total of approximately 22,000 square feet. These facilities are well equipped with modern analytical instruments.
The service activities of the faculty include membership and leadership on the committees of the University and on peer review committees at the national and international levels. Department members serve as Editor or Associate Editor of the major journals in their area of expertise. Several additional department members serve on major editorial boards including those of the American Journal of Physiology, the Journal of Biological Chemistry, the Biochemical Journal and the International Journal of Biochemistry and Cell Biology. Service in advisory groups and national study sections is also extensive.
