Cell Physiology and Pharmacology
On the 1st August 2015 all staff within the Department of Cell Physiology & Pharmacology (CPP) will join colleagues in two new departments:
Department of Molecular & Cell Biology
Department of Neuroscience, Psychology & Behaviour.
These realignments are being undertaken to advance our research objectives within the College of Medicine, Biological Sciences & Psychology.
The teaching of the degrees associated with CPP (Biological Sciences (Physiology with Pharmacology), Biological Sciences (Neuroscience), and Medical Physiology) will be completely unaffected by these changes and the academic team delivering Physiology, Pharmacology & Neuroscience undergraduate teaching will be unchanged.
The CPP web-pages will be progressively updated throughout July 2015.
The Department of Cell Physiology and Pharmacology brings together research strengths in cellular and molecular aspects of physiology, pharmacology and neuroscience within the University. We are one of eleven departments comprising the College of Medicine, Biological Sciences and Psychology and are situated in the Maurice Shock Building, Hodgkin Building and the Henry Wellcome Building on the main University campus.
The main research focus of the Department is in cell surface receptors, ion channels and intracellular signalling pathways, particularly their role in diseases of the cardiovascular system, respiratory and nervous systems. Academic staff are also members of research themes within the College which facilitate interdisciplinary translational research.
Our world class research activities inform our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes providing a stimulating and cutting edge environment for learning.
Athena Swan - The Athena Swan Charter recognises and celebrates good employment practice for women working in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) in higher education.
The Department has access to the facilities in the Centre for Core Biotechnology Services (CBS)
