The Department of Cellular 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 is to create new knowledge about the function and interactions of living cells, the cellular and molecular basis for dysfunction, and ultimately provide the basis for the development of new clinical treatment strategies to combat disease.
