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!
