From our Head of Department
At the University of Oxford's Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, we undertake discovery science where we reassemble physiological processes at the molecular, cellular, tissue and systems level of organisation. In so doing we provide a bridge to translational medicine, and interface between physical and life sciences. Our students are the future of our research and so we work to provide them with the opportunities to become the next generation of doctors and biomedical scientists. We are committed not only to research and teaching, but also to supporting our staff and students. The Department does not tolerate bullying or harassment of any kind, and actively promotes the provision of a family friendly working environment, equal opportunities and career development.
