The Ohio State University
The Department of Physiology and Cell Biology at The Ohio State University has a long history. It is one of the oldest departments in the United States having been established in 1879 by Albert Bleile, a student of Carl Ludwig in 1870. The department has been internationally recognized as a leader in the field of muscle physiology since the days of Professor Emil Bozler (1936-1975). Faculty members in the department are at the forefront of modern physiological research ranging from basic to applied translational research. Their research involves molecular genetics, proteomics / protein expression, cell biology, advanced imaging techniques, expertise in single cell and organ physiology, and genetically engineered transgenic animal models for disease. Students and postdoctoral researchers have opportunities to pursue research in contemporary fields exploring the mechanisms of disease in cardiovascular, neuronal and cancer biology. Our faculty are also actively involved in teaching medical and other professional students, as well as graduate and undergraduate students.
The Ohio State University is an exciting place where students and faculty have the opportunity to interact with not only faculty in College of Medicine, but also with faculty in the Colleges of Veterinary Medicine, Pharmacy, Dentistry, and Arts and Sciences, and others across one of the largest University campuses in the country.
The mission of the Department of Physiology and Cell Biology has three major components.
