The Physiology Department offers training leading to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. The scope of the ongoing research, and close connections with the McGill teaching hospitals, offer excellent opportunities for collaborations with hospital-based scientists. Research in the Department covers a broad range of topics from systems neuroscience to molecular and cellular biology. Interests include studies of nuclear and membrane receptors, transporters, channels and signal transduction pathways, to the broader integration of physiological systems (cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, endocrine, immune and central nervous systems) using an array of molecular and cellular approaches as well as quantitative techniques in data collections, analysis, and mathematical modeling by computational means. All graduate students in Physiology receive financial support. Any faculty member who agrees to supervise a student who agrees to supervise a student who does not hold a fellowship is obliged to provide financial support.
