Course content

Our PhD/MPhil Physiology programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Physiology.

Physiology seeks to addresses how the individual aspects of molecular, cellular, tissue and organ function relates to whole organism function and how perturbations from the external environment effect these processes.

Our research utilises emerging technologies in parallel with more traditional studies at whole organism level.

This approach benefits from the sense of perspective gained from the application of a wide range of techniques to understanding physiological systems.

Examples of current physiological research include:

  • Cardiovascularand muscle responses to injury;
  • Male and female infertility;
  • Diabetes mellitusand secretory processes;
  • Body fluid homeostasis.
