Matthew Klass, PhD 

Lecturer, Physiology
Research Interests

After focusing my graduate research on cardiovascular biophysics, I started a career in teaching people physiology. Sharing an enriched understanding of how the body functions with other learners all the while experimenting with methods to optimize this instruction are my main goals! As an alumnus of both our Physiology and Physiological Sciences Programs, it warms my heart to enter into and give back to the teaching community that invested in and trained me.
