(i) Aisha Sati & (ii) Sahib Rasulov, 1-yr PhD Presentation, Department of Physiology
Academic and research staff in the 20 laboratories of the Department are engaged in high quality, internationally-recognised physiological research focussed on the three themes of Cardiovascular & Respiratory Physiology, Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience, and Membrane & Ion Transport. State-of-the-art technologies, including the use of transgenic mouse models, are used to undertake integrative, cellular and molecular investigations aimed at understanding animal and human physiology.
The six laboratories within the focus conduct research into the regulation of cardiovascular and respiratory function in both health and disease.
The nine laboratories within the Department of Physiology use cutting edge research techniques to understand the structure and function of the nervous system.
Within the focus six groups are involved in investigations of the mechanisms and regulation of solute and water movement across cell membranes and resultant pathologies.
I love it how we are learning cutting edge research from people who are top in the world in their field of research.
