Welcome to the Department of Human Physiology
by Li-Shan Chou, Department Head
On behalf of the faculty and students of the Department of Human Physiology, I would like to welcome you to our website. Our department 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…)
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.
While some of us might have to Google where in the world Croatia is, Dr. Andy Lovering is taking his Fulbright Program funds and researching prevention of respiratory diseases by studying breath hold divers in this small country along the Adriatic sea.
