Laboratory of Veterinary Physiology

Laboratory of Veterinary Physiology

The Veterinary Physiology is to investigate physiological functions and regulatory mechanisms of animal, from intracellular molecular level to organs. This course offers students lectures and experiments to understand normal functions about not only a cell but also systems such as nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, alimentary, endocrine, and urinary systems etc. Therefore, the study of Veterinary Physiology broadens students’ scientific interests and extends their knowledges for biomedical research and clinical fields.
