Physiological Research

Physiology compliments the departments' cell and developmental biology, biodiversity and the ecological research. Physiology deals with the functioning of organisms and the internal integration of a host of biochemical, cellular, tissue and whole organism mechanisms. Research in this area covers a spectrum from regulatory physiological mechanisms to the effects of environmental factors on biological functions. The departments' excellent complement of physiologists bring an array of innovative techniques to bear in research advancing frontiers in physiology.
