Physiological Systems (PSYS)

 The Physiological Systems concentration area is focused on biological processes at the physical, mechanistic, and systems levels. We provide training for tackling fundamental problems of biological systems, using multidisciplinary approaches and cutting-edge technologies. With strengths in physiology, biophysics, and computational biology, the University of Maryland is uniquely positioned to provide training to graduate students interested in the functional and mechanistic understanding of biological processes.
