The Department of Physiology & Biophysics provides numerous opportunities for graduate students interested in pursuing their doctoral degrees. Our department is highly collaborative, allowing students the flexibility to explore all aspects of modern biological research. Many of our faculty members hold joint appointments in departments ranging from:

  • Chemistry
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering and Materials Science
  • Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program
  • Medicine
  • Opthalmology
  • Pediatrics

Students currently enrolled in a graduate program at UC Irvine should contact individual faculty members to learn about specific graduate training opportunities in each laboratory.

Faculty members also actively participate in the Medical Scientist Training Program at UC Irvine School of Medicine, and a number of MD and PhD students have trained or are in training under faculty mentors.
