The study of normal body function, critical for understanding human health. The focus is on how individual organ systems integrate molecular and cellular components into function and how different organs cooperatively function to maintain homeostasis. Studies examine how the complex interactions of endocrine, reproductive, circadian, immune, metabolic, mechanical and neuronal signals, maintain a steady-state internal environment. This knowledge forms the basis for understanding dysregulated body function leading to cancer, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and renal, gastrointestinal, and metabolic disorders.
