Department of Physiology and Pharmacology


GradStairs was created by Dr. Bina Joe in 2015, when she became chairwoman of the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology. The GradStairs name represents graduate students climbing their career stairs.

The primary function of GradStairs is to encourage participation and interaction of all MOME track and departmental students by discussing issues ranging from courses, science, and career paths during bi-weekly meetings held on Fridays at noon. These meetings are referred to as "Interactome". Please check out the calendar for upcoming GradStairs meetings. Also, please visit us on Facebook to see more pictures of events and for upcoming announcements.
