About the Department of Physiology

About the Department of Physiology

Physiology has its roots in many of the basic sciences including biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics, and overlaps with other biomedical sciences such as anatomy, biochemistry, microbiology & immunology, neurology, pathology, pharmacology, psychology, and biomedical engineering. Physiology is one of the prime contributors of basic scientific knowledge to the clinical medical sciences. Members of the Department of Physiology at McGill are engaged in studies dealing with molecules, single cells, or entire systems in a variety of vertebrates, including humans. A wide rage of interest and expertise is represented, including:

  • biomathematics
  • biophysics
  • cardiovascular
  • endocrinology
  • gastrointestinal and renal physiology
  • immunology
  • neurophysiology
  • the physiology of exercise
  • respiratory

The Department also has a rich graduate research program leading to either the M.Sc. or the Ph.D. degree, and is a participant in McGill's M.D.,C.M. & Ph.D. program.

Some faculty members have formal or informal links with the Departments of Mathematics and Statistics; Physics; Electrical and Computer Engineering; and Chemistry, and with clinical medical departments, reflecting and reinforcing the close ties between physiology and other disciplines.

Please see the Faculty of Medicine's Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies section, and the Faculty of Science's Undergraduate section for more information.
