Welcome to the Chair and Department
of Experimental and Clinical Physiology
On behalf of all of the employees of the Chair and Department of Experimental and Clinical Physiology and myself,
I would like to welcome you to the website of the Chair and Department of Physiology.
The Chair and Department of Physiology is a place for teaching students who are preparing to work in the medical profession as doctors or dentists or work in related medical professions in the field of human physiology and pathophysiology. Apart from the basic study programs, the Department also offers elective classes, which are designed to promote translational medicine, combining theoretical issues with clinical practice.
The purpose of correct physiology is to teach the mechanisms which enable the proper functioning of the human body and also to think about the various organs and systems as elements of the whole organism and to understand the mechanisms which enable the integration of the functioning of individual organs. The teaching of pathological physiology (pathophysiology) makes it possible to understand the changes that take place in the human body under the influence of pathogens and to understand the causes of these changes.
In our department, students and graduate students have the opportunity to gain experience in conducting scientific research through participation in projects in the field of basic physiology and pathophysiology of selected diseases (myocardial infarction, hypertension, stress cardiomyopathy, diabetes, obesity and chronic renal failure). Scientific research carried out in the department are both experimental (animal models) and clinical.
We trust that you will find here, on our website, the answers to all of the questions that you may have about the department and its activities, concerning both teaching and research. Please contact us by telephone
or email if you have any additional questions.
