The Center for Integrative Physiology and Molecular Medicine (CIPMM) facilitates interdisciplinary and integrative research to investigate the function and dysfunction of signal processing to decipher the interaction between the nervous, immune and endocrine systems.


The department of Physiology promotes the study of the molecular basis of cell function to the integrated behavior of the whole body. We also train the next generation of medical doctors and scientists by fostering excellence in teaching and research.



Neuroscience encompasses the various scientific disciplines dealing with structure, development, function, chemistry, pharmacology, and pathology of the nervous system. Using the olfactory system as a model we investigate the molecular and cellular events mediating mammalian communication at the level of recognition and detection of specific signaling molecules to processing of these signals in the brain.
