In the Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology

We strive to understand gene products at multiple levels of biological organization, from molecules and macromolecular complexes to cells, tissues, and whole organisms. With the tools of molecular genetics, biophysics, and modern systems biology, physiologists are at the forefront of life and biomedical sciences.

Illinois researchers test nicotinic hypothesis of COVID-19
Although researchers have learned much about SARS-CoV-2, the vast array of unexplained symptoms associated with acute and post-acute ("long") COVID-19 warrants the search for additional biochemical pathways involved. On the basis of amino-acid sequence analyses and computational approaches, it has...
