Physiology is the discipline that underpins modern medicine and this is reflected in our course. The emphasis of our research led teaching is on how the body copes with the normal demands we place upon it during everyday life.
We also study how body systems go wrong in diseases such as diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and neurodegeneration.
Our approach is an integrative one, ranging from how whole organs work and interact to control body functions, down to the molecular mechanisms operating within cells.
