Welcome to the Department of Human Physiology
Human Physiology is home to undergraduate and graduate students who desire strong training in human physiology and anatomy that will prepare them for careers in medicine, allied health professions, and biomedical research. (more…)
During the month of February, Human Physiology is supporting the Oregon Governor’s Food Drive.

The human heart is a marvel of biological engineering that keeps us healthy and alive, but it’s not without its imperfections. One third of the population has a little-known, minor heart condition: A tiny hole known as a patent foramen ovale or PFO. Andrew Lovering, a professor in the Department of Human Physiology, has been studying the feature for the last 15 years.
Dr. Lovering will explore this heart condition in next week’s Dec. 12 pub talk, “The ‘Hole’ Story of Cardiovascular Physiology & Medicine,” at the Downtown Athletic Club’s Ax Billy Grill starting at 6 p.m. Admission is free.
Human Physiology is hiring 2 Assistant, Associate or Full Professors with research interests in Motor Control, Biomechanics, and/or Neurophysiology. Application deadline is December 3rd.
Additionally, our office is hiring an Undergraduate Coordinator that will act as the primary support person for our undergraduate program. Position closes December 17th.
