The Department of Physiology and Biophysics at has as its goal the study of normal and abnormal protein function within membranes and cells, normal and abnormal function of cells, organs and intact animals and humans using state-of-the-art biophysical, computational, genomic, proteomic and physiological techniques. We have particular strengths in the areas of ion channels, skeletal muscle physiology, epithelial cell biology, neurophysiology, vision, environmental and cardiorespiratory physiology. Within the department we have faculty that actively participate in four interdisciplinary centers.

The Physiology and Biophysics Department at UB offers extensive educational programs in Physiology and Biophysics at the undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral levels. This provides students with academic flexibility in designing their graduate studies.
