With funding from the NSF and cooperation among the departments of Biology, Mathematics, Basic Medical Sciences, Agricultural and Biological Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering, Purdue's program in quantitative physiology seeks to provide training and support for undergraduate and graduate students to apply mathematical and computational tools to understand the structure and function of biological systems at the physiological level.

Students in the program have the opportunity to work closely with other students and with faculty mentors on a variety of research topics, including cardiac electrophysiology, coding strategies in the auditory system, neuronal models of learning-induced plasticity, and spinal cord injury. Specially designated courses provide the background and training needed to be successful in this research, and regular seminars provide the program with a supportive community of researchers and the opportunity to present the results of the on-going research.
