Welcome to the Department of Physiology and the improved and exciting new look to our web-site.

Physiology is the integrative study of cellular and whole-body function, and is the pivotal discipline linking other basic biomedical sciences on the one hand with experimental and clinical medicine on the other. We are a teaching- and research-intensive department focusing on advanced studies in cardiovascular physiology, cellular and systems neurophysiology, cellular and molecular physiology, endocrinology, fetal/neonatal physiology, membrane biophysics and transport physiology, renal physiology, respiratory physiology, vision, and the interfaces between these fields.

Dr Greg Funk received the Tier 1 Basic Science Award for Excellence in Mentoring - CONGRATULATIONS Greg!

Our 100th Anniversary

We held our Centennial Dinner in May 2014, and our Centennial Symposium on May 29th and 30th, 2014. Both were a great success!

As the oldest department in the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry the Department of Physiology had celebrated its Centennial in 2014.

If you would like more information about the event and the interesting story of our first Chair, Dr Heber H Moshier, who helped raise and organized the 11th Canadian Field Ambulance Battalion in WWI, part of the Canadian Army Medical Corps please follow the links below:
