Comparative Physiology

At Comparative Physiology, we conduct research and teaching in physiology, neurobiology and cell biology.

Comparative Physiology

In Comparative Physiology, we study the anatomy and physiological processes of animals and how they are influenced by, and interact with, their surrounding environment. Physiological and behavioral processes are studied from the perspective of the entire organism down to mechanistic aspects on molecular, cell biological, neuronal circuitry and tissue levels. Specific attention is dedicated to immunology and neurobiology. The whole range from embryonal, post-natal and adult stages are studied in various species. The program for Comparative Physiology is headed by Professor Åsa Mackenzie and currently consists of two independent research groups, Mackenzie lab and Söderhäll lab. All teachers and PhD students are involved in teaching at all levels and are responsible for undergraduate courses in cell biology, neurobiology and animal physiology among other.
