Welcome to the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at Western University. This is a research-intensive department, focusing on many aspects of Physiology and Pharmacology from the molecular to the whole organism level. The department also has a strong commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The website outlines the research programs in which our faculty members and trainees are engaged, and the state-of-the-art laboratory facilities available. If you are a prospective graduate student or postdoctoral fellow, please visit web pages of individual faculty members for an overview of their current research and publications.

Graduate student applicants will find extensive information about our degree programs, with a Graduate Student Handbook and application materials on the graduate program pages. The website also describes potential careers in which our own graduates have flourished.

The website also contains extensive information about our undergraduate teaching programs with a wide array of course, laboratory and program offerings, taught by faculty members and teaching assistants who are committed to excellence in education.

For current department members, we have included several web pages that allow you ready access to information, and links to resources & services to facilitate your work lives.
