Physiology | Kent State University

The MS and PhD programs in Physiology (to be renamed Integrative Physiology and Neurobiology) allow students to engage in study and research that are specific to their interests and that complement the strengths of the department. Students interested in Neurobiology should refer the Neurobiology Graduate Faculty page and Departmental research pages for more information.
