Animal Physiology

Organisational unit: Research group

Description

The research in the research group Animal Physiology concerns the function of the body. We have a huge range of techniques and model organisms to our help. Everything from how single cells in culture respond to their substrate to the way whole organ systems develop and respond to environmental stress.

Research

Physiology is the study of the functions of the body, or how the body works. An understanding of physiology underpins advances in biomedical research, so research in animal physiology impacts broadly on medicine, agriculture, industry and environmental science. Our research uses a huge range of techniques and model organisms. Our approaches span the study of single cells in culture and the ways they respond to their substrate and environment, through to the study of cellular physiology in living animals and the way whole organ systems develop and respond to environmental stress. Our facilities include state-of-the-art equipment for cell culture and imaging of cells and tissues, and for recording physiological responses in-vivo.
