Physiology Research Committee

 Mission Statement
The purpose of this Committee is to identify and implement creative solutions to enhance departmental research success.  To this end, the committee (i) organizes collegial grant peer review and work-in-progress presentations, (ii) designs and maintains research-related elements of the Physiology Department website, and (iii) identifies common equipment and maintenance contract purchases to maximize scientific productivity.  The committee also organizes a biennial research retreat that focuses upon successful grant writing, inter-laboratory collaboration, emerging scientific techniques, and university Core services. As funds are available, the committee develops and oversees policies for initiatives such as pilot project funding.
