Department of Physiology
Hello Spartan community! As we embark on another academic year, I'd like to take a moment to reflect on the journey we've been through together and share some exciting prospects for the future of the department.
Last year and this past spring semester presented us with numerous challenges, some of which we could have never anticipated and forever changed us as a community. After nine years as department chair, Dr. Lee Cox stepped down last May to accept a new position as the university's Research Integrity Officer. We hired eight new faculty members to accommodate the growth of our department and meet the increased enrollment pressure in our undergraduate physiology and neuroscience courses and programs. We also saw some faculty and staff departures; we wish them well in their new endeavors.Read Newsletter
