Research

"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 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."

Center for Translational Research and Education (CTRE)

    

The Department of Cell and Molecular Physiology is located in the beautiful new Center for Translational Research and Education (CTRE). The CTRE is a vibrant new addition to Loyola’s Health Sciences Campus. This state-of-the-art facility brings together the Stritch School of Medicine, Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing, The Graduate School, and Loyola University Health System on an exciting cooperative journey with one unified goal—the rapid translation of fundamental science discoveries into real treatments for human health.

 

 

 

Cardiovascular Research Institute (CVRI)

 

Our department is closely associated with the Cardiovascular Research Institute (CVRI). The CVRI includes over 50 faculty from basic science and clinical departments. The mission of the CVRI is to enhance collaborative research that is broadly related to cardiovascular disease and neuroscience, with the major goal of fostering scientific exchange between clinicians and basic scientists at Loyola Health Sciences Division (HSD).
