The Department of physiology and biophysics stands out as a dynamic and innovative program in many respects. Our graduate programs offer students the possibility to work closely with their mentors and/ or thesis directors. The proximity to different clinical research centres and the close relationships with hospitals and care centres around the province give the advantage of participating in translational research projects.

Our most prominent research areas are in Respiratoty and cardio-vascular physiology, pain management and endocrinology. Internationally recognised by their peers, our professors entertain scientific partnerships with researchers all around the world. Please consult the Faculty section of this site to learn more about each professor’s area of research and the scope of choices that are available to our students.
