Warren Burggren is a Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences and Provost at the University of North Texas. His research focuses on developmental and evolutionary physiology at the tissue, organ system and organismal level, with an emphasis on the cardiovascular, respiratory and renal systems. Understanding how these systems first develop and begin to interact with each other is at the core of the projects that he and his research team carry out. While genetic underpinnings of physiological processes have directed many aspects of his research, in recent years his efforts have necessarily expanded to the field of transgenerational epigenetics, and the implications they have for developing a deeper understanding physiological data and the performance of physiological systems. Burggren has published approximately 250 articles, chapters, monographs and textbooks in comparative animal physiology.
