The Department of Molecular Physiology and Biological Physics has five new faculty members recruited since 2007. Most of the department is located in two building Jordan Hall and the new Sheridan G. Snyder Translational Research Building, on the grounds of the University of Virginia, facilitating collaboration between faculties of the College and the Medical School.
Training and research are enhanced by modern departmental equipment and facilities for state-of-the-art
Members of the faculty are international leaders in their respective fields and for over a decade the department has ranked among the top 9 physiology departments in NIH-sponsored research. The PhD programs in physiology and biophysics each achieved ranges which put them in the top 15th percentile in at least one of the two overall rankings by the National Research Council. (2010)
Faculty, visiting scientists, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students from several continents create a stimulating international environment for our program.
