Discipline of Physiology
The Discipline of Physiology is part of the School of Medical Sciences and is the focus of teaching and research in the physiological sciences at The University of Sydney.
Its research staff and students are located primarily at the Camperdown Campus of the University, in the Anderson Stuart Building and in the Medical Foundation Building. Academics in the discipline teach undergraduate programs in the Faculty of Science, and the Graduate Medical Program.
The research interests of the faculty span a broad range of topics in the physiological sciences, with particular research focus on neuroscience, cardiovascular physiology, reproductive physiology, and endocrine function. Techniques used in our laboratories include imaging, electrophysiology, molecular biology, and human and animal behaviour.
Congratulations to honours student Adelina Romano
Adelina Romano has been awarded a Travelling Fellowship by the Company of Biologists. Adelina is a member of the Blood Cell Development Lab supervised by Dr Stuart Fraser, investigating the origin and regulation of a newly identified macrophage population found in the mouse yolk sac. As an extension of her research, she will be visiting the laboratory of Professor Daisuke Sugiyama at Kyushu University, Japan. We wish her success in this collaborative project.
