Goals/Objectives

  • Choose from several options within this flexible elective. Mastery of a specific topic in physiology and cell biology is expected and should exceed the basic knowledge gained from required classes and clerkships. An underlying focus of this research should be its potential transferability to a clinical setting.

Description of Rotation

Intensive study of a special problem related to physiology and/or cell biology, which may include clinical or basic science research project. A written summary of the topic or a paper reporting research results must be submitted at the end of the rotation. The feasibility of clinical translation must be included in the final report.

Please contact Drs. Sanders or Highison for a listing of possible research preceptors.
