The program leading to the Ph.D. provides training in quantitative areas of modern physiology and biophysics for those interested in pursuing a career in research. Programs of study are individualized, and most training occurs in the research laboratories of faculty members. Courses can also be taken in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at the University of Illinois, Chicago as the two departments have a joint training program. Questions regarding the Ph.D. program should be directed to Drs. Fredric Cohen: Fredric_Cohen@rush.edu and Dirk Gillespie: Dirk_Gillespie@rush.edu.
The Department holds a regular seminar schedule of invited speakers from outside the institution, as well as researchers from Rush University. Please call the Department for additional information. Our seminar coordinator is Dr. Elena Dedkova: Elena_Dedkova@rush.edu.
