The cellular, molecular, and integrative physiology group is composed of an intellectually diverse consortium of researchers that broadly seek to develop an understanding of the basic biological mechanisms controlling health, reproduction, and productivity of livestock species. The level of biological organization studied varies from the molecular and cellular to the organism using both reductionist and systems biology approaches.

The ethos of the group is collaborative, and investigators freely share resources and ideas. Extensive use is made of the laboratory resources of the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research and other core laboratories on campus. Funding for postdoctoral and predoctoral scientists is available from Federal (NIH, USDA-NIFA, and NSF) and other sources. Graduate students can pursue their degrees through the Animal Molecular and Cellular Biology Graduate Program or Animal Sciences Graduate Program.
