Message From The Chair

Welcome from the Chair, Dr. James Young

James Young

Thank you for visiting 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.
