Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience


This information is intended for those supervising courses based in the Department of Physiology, Development & Neuroscience.

Please make sure that you are registered with us! Mel Quy ( maintains a list of supervisors for courses based in PDN. If you are interested in supervising one of our courses, or if you are a DoS looking for a supervisor, please contact Mel directly. If you no longer wish to supervise our courses, please let Mel know so that she can remove you from the list.


Important notes for the coming academic year (2020-1)

1. The 2020-1 academic year is clearly going to be very unusual, in that the courses are being run primarily online. Please click on links for individual subjects below to find out course-specific information. These subject sites will be updated when we can because many courses are not completed at the time of writing, so please bear with us if information is not yet available on this site. You may have to contact the Course Organiser for the latest information.

2. Our course guides and lecture notes are to be found on Moodle, our web-based "virtual learning environment". Last year's Moodle sites have been archived but can be accessed if necessary. Please contact Mel Quy if you find that you do not have access to any of these websites.

3. The Department of Physiology, Development & Neuroscience maintains its decision that printed handouts will no longer be given out in any of its courses, in any part of any Tripos. Lecture and practical notes will still be available on the course websites, however.

Please follow these links for more information and updates on specific subjects:

Those supervising or studying physiology might be interested in joining the Physiological Society, which also offers grants for undergraduate summer projects.

Please contact Dr Matt Mason if you have any questions about supervising PDN courses which are not addressed here, or if you have any suggestions for other things that you would like to see on this website.
