Research Opportunities

Physiology faculty members serve as mentors and research supervisors of several undergraduate students each semester. Undergraduate physiology majors also participate in research projects with faculty in other departments across campus. Physiology majors who participate with faculty sponsors in research projects have the opportunity to present their research at departmental poster sessions held each October and April.

This website provides information on how to get involved with research at the UA, as well as search engines for research programs and faculty at the UA conducting research.  It is sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research in the College of Science.
