Stritch - Cell & Molecular Physiology


The Department of Cell and Molecular Physiology at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine is pioneering the development of new approaches to study cells and organisms in the new discipline of systems biology. The ultimate goal of our research: create knowledge about the function and interactions of living cells, the cellular and molecular basis for dysfunction, and eventually provide the basis for the development of clinical treatment strategies to mitigate disease. 

Department faculty are affiliated with these seven degree programs at the Health Sciences Campus: IPBS-PhD and Master's programs in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Cell and Molecular Physiology; Clinical and Applied Proteomics; Integrative Cell Biology; Medical Physiology, and Neuroscience. Interested in joining our Department?  View positions for faculty, postdocs, and lab support.
