You will explore the effects of extreme environmental conditions on whole body physiology, including in relation to aerospace and military medicine.

You will study topics from both systemic and cellular/molecular perspectives in order to gain an understanding of the breadth of investigative approaches employed in human physiology research. You will also focus on practical work, learning how to plan and run experiments using human subjects.
