Welcome to the Programs in Physiology & Biophysics

Dr. Venetia Zachariou

Our department uses multidisciplinary approaches to investigate the cellular, molecular, and neuroanatomical mechanisms underlying human diseases, and to understand how we can modulate these mechanisms for therapeutic development.

As a basic science department within the Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine, we are strongly committed to teaching and training medical, dental, master’s and doctoral students in all aspects of pharmacology, cellular physiology and biophysics.
