Overview

In the Molecular Physiology and Biophysics program offered by The University of Vermont, a common research focus is directed at understanding the molecular basis of cellular movement, whether it is processes associated with cell division or muscle contraction. 

By studying genetic alterations in cellular movement, special emphasis is directed at defining normal and diseased contractile function of the heart, blood vessels, and processes associated with cell division, e.g. chromosome segregation during mitosis. 

The Department is considered the premier center of muscle and non-muscle cell motility research in the United States. An additional research focus is on protein molecular structure, with expertise in high resolution 3-dimensional electronmicroscopy.
