หลักสูตรระดับบัณฑิตศึกษา (Graduate Curricula)

The Department offers Postgraduate Programs with essential theory and practice in Physiology devoted mainly to understanding the human body. Apart from the basic course requirements, the department provides supervision for programs leading to the award of an M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Physiology.

The M.Sc. program requires students to undertake both coursework and research, whereas the Ph.D. program normally requires only research leading to the presentation of a thesis. However, some coursework may be assigned to candidates who have insufficient background knowledge in particular areas.

3. ทิศทางงานวิจัย (Research areas)

The Department of Physiology is currently active in six main research areas:

Neurophysiology: Electrophysiological recordings and behavioral studies are used to investigate learning and memory mechanisms and to search for neurobiological markers of normal and pathological conditions particularly in addiction, neurodegeneration and sleep disorders. Neuroprotective roles of novel nanoparticles and Thai medicinal plant extract are also investigated.Cardiovascular Physiology: Research focuses on cardiovascular control mechanisms and the risk factors of atherosclerosis both in vivo and in vitro study. Also, the isolation of bio-active compounds derived from Thai medicinal plants and their effects on the cardiovascular systems are being extensively investigated.

Exercise Physiology: Research focuses on various factors including nutrition, lifestyle, disease or physical training that have impact on pulmonary and cardiovascular functions, physical fitness and the improvement of fitness rehabililation.

Respiratory Physiology: Research focuses on the mechanisms of airway epithelial transport and pulmonary function test in health and diseases.
Renal Physiology: Research involves the study of renal transport of electrolytes and organic ions, the effects of medicinal plants on kidney excretory functions, and the effects of peptide hormones on renal functions.

Gastrointestinal Physiology: Research focuses on mechanisms and regulation of the membrane transport including ion channels, gut barriers and signal transduction.

Main Research Aims

Research activities for presentation of a thesis are mainly concerned with providing an understanding of the physiological mechanisms of general body function in both healthy and pathological situations. However, students may also be guided to undertake research on topics of current public health concerns including metabolic syndromes, renal malfunction or brain degenerative diseases. The Department of Physiology’s goal is to train independent, creative, productive scholars in the physiological sciences.
