What is Physiology?

Physiology is the study of life – it is the science of how cells work, how they co-operate in organs like the heart or brain and how these organs function together in the body as a whole. Knowing how the body works is essential for understanding how it goes wrong in sickness and disease, therefore physiology is the scientific basis of human and animal medicine.

Physiology: The course for you?

In the Physiology Department at Trinity we focus on human physiology and how it is affected by disease, although you will study other animal species in some modules. We study every aspect of the human body, from the function of individual proteins in cells, to the function of the different body systems such as the cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems, all the way through to the integrated, whole body level. Physiology continues to be at the forefront of research in biomedical science, because there are still so many things about the functioning of the human body that remain unknown. If we know more about our physiology we can use this knowledge to develop better treatments for various diseases. As a student of physiology you will be provided with a detailed understanding of a range of cell and organ systems, and will receive training in scientific methodology, experimental design, data analysis and research skills.

Physiology @ Trinity

The Physiology Department is part of the School of Medicine and has strong teaching and research links with other disciplines in the school, such as physiotherapy and clinical medicine, and with other schools in the Faculty of Engineering, Mathematics and Science. All of our lecturers run research laboratories and the major strengths of the department are in neuroscience, cell biology and exercise physiology. In Trinity, we recognise the vital importance of laboratory teaching. We encourage every student who enters the teaching laboratory to consider himself or herself as a research scientist from day one. This research training culminates in the individual Capstone research project each student carries out in the final year. We train students to design experiments that may help to solve some of the mysteries that remain about the function of the human body. We teach them how to make accurate measurements, how to generate data, how to analyse those data and how to draw conclusions based on the data. Using this hands-on approach, they gain a much deeper knowledge of the subject of physiology.

Graduate skills and career opportunities

When you graduate you will be able to use your general scientific training and specialised knowledge of physiology to find employment in a wide variety of jobs. You may pursue further training in physiology and become a research scientist in a hospital, the pharmaceutical industry, a government agency or a university. Some graduates undertake further study in health-related fields such as medicine or physiotherapy.
