Research in the Department covers a broad spectrum, ranging in length scale from molecular to whole animal, and encompassing a wide variety of physiological systems and experimental approaches. Primary faculty members typically collaborate with faculty in other established centers and areas of strength at the University. Identified areas of concentration within the department include:

Often, a faculty member's research will span these artificial divisions. For example, Dr. Diane Dalecki's primary area of interest is ultrasound bioeffects, which involves her in problems ranging from the safety and efficacy of ultrasound imaging, to molecular mechanisms by which ultrasound may promote wound healing and tissue regeneration. Take a few minutes to peruse the individual pages of our research clusters and award winning faculty. You will find discoveries that range from remarkable to astounding. Enjoy.
