About the department
The Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology is a leading international centre for research into the fundamental principles of human physiology.
We're providing a vital link between basic and translational research in the post genomic era, contributing expertise in physiological disciplines ranging from the regulation of gene expression to cell, tissue and whole organism biology.
Our six key research areas are:-
- Cell physiology
- Systems physiology
- Smooth muscle physiology
- Neuronal signalling
- Calcium signalling in health and disease
- Gastroenterology Research
New programmes in vascular biology are under development – within an exciting department that has strong partnerships with clinicians in cancer research, reproductive medicine, child health and pancreatic research.
