Overview

Discoveries in physiology impact on health and medicine, our environment, industry, nutrition, exercise and reproductive biology, and you could set yourself up for a career in any of these areas by understanding how cells, organs and whole-of-body functions work. Our bodies work amazingly most of the time, but what happens when something goes wrong?

Learn how disturbances in the endocrine, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, developmental and neural control systems impact our health, and devise experimental studies that might help us understand what we can do to stop them. Many of the discoveries from the human genome project rely on physiology to understand their impact on the human body.
