Course description

Physiology is the study of function in living systems. This could be in plants and animals, but in Manchester we concentrate on the function of humans and other mammals. Physiologists work at the level of whole organisms, tissues, cells and now molecules, and we use a wide range of methods in our experiments. A major challenge to physiologists in this the post-genomic era is to determine the function of the many uncharacterised proteins encoded by the human genome. This will involve understanding how these proteins influence the activity of cells, tissues and the whole organism in health and disease.
