Our weekly seminar gives students the opportunity to practice presenting, learn about research in physiology, and learn about what others in the program are doing.  Students are required to present one seminar in this series annually and to attend the course regularly.  All faculty (ESPECIALLY committee members), students, and postdocs are welcome!

Our seminars celebrate the array of fields that make-up Physiology; speakers are grouped together to represent these fields.  This year, the groups are, “Cancer;” “Organs & Muscles;” “Brain;” and “New Students.”

Meetings are on Thursdays, 4:00-5:00pm, 5571 WIMR II.  The classroom is at the end of the hallway.  The doorway to this wing can be locked.  Should you be interested in attending, please contact Shelley ( and she will ensure that you are able to enter the building.

The 2017-2018 PGTP 901 seminar schedule for the fall semester is outlined below.  Check back regularly for updates, including seminar titles!
