Human physiology is the science of the functioning of human organs and the cells that compose them. As a discipline, it connects science, medicine & health, and investigates the interaction and coordination of molecules, cells, tissues & organs, and how these parts make up the whole body.
At the undergraduate level, students are enabled to develop academic competence at the highest level attainable, and are introduced to the forefront of current knowledge in human physiology. The practical modules cover hematology, experimental, biochemical, nutritional, molecular biology & microbiology, etc. The lecture modules include neuroscience, regulatory physiology, neuromuscular physiology, perspectives in physiology research, and cell signalling, etc. Interdisciplinary courses and the units involved are biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, genetics, immunology, ergonomics, nutrition, statistics and many more.
In a nutshell, Human Physiology as a course of Undergraduation serves the following purposes:
1. To enquire the fascinating complexity of human body.
2. As a gateway to carriers in health and other related field.
3. Overall effective maintenance of individual and community health.
