Cellular and systems physiology

Cellular and systems physiology has a strong presence across our department and encompasses a wide range of research activities to answer fundamental questions about cell physiology and the integration of responses at the tissue and whole organism level. The interdisciplinary nature of this research means that there are often synergistic interactions with the other research themes in the Department.

The research groups in this theme use a wide range of techniques including cell imaging and signalling pathways, electrophysiology, optogenetics, metabolic and hormone profiling, transgenic mouse analysis and mathematical modelling.
