Physiology of today is the Medicine of tomorrow (Ernest Starling).
Physiology is the study of the mechanism responsible for homeostasis of a living system. As such the discipline concerned with the normal functions of the body and it provides the foundation upon which we expand our knowledge and understanding of how life processes are deranged by diseases and environmental stresses. Understanding scientific procedures from basic sciences like intracellular mechanisms to the functional integration of various systems is the purpose of understanding physiological sciences. As an essential component of medical teaching and research physiology contributes to our understanding of normal functions that is a prerequisite to understanding the pathophysiologic process, disease condition and their treatment. Hence the department of physiology is fully committed to the principles of medical education which are the transmission of knowledge through teaching, generation of knowledge through research and dissemination and preservation of knowledge through publication. The mission of the Department of Physiology is:
To provide a superior teaching in the physiological sciences to medical UG and PG students.
To achieve and maintain the highest measure in competitive research
Provide service to Medical College and University as a whole.
Beside this department of physiology also produce high-quality education to support other major and minor program in the campus. The department conducts scholarly work, applied research and other projects including student short term project that support the physiology and health science discipline. Department also provides Extracurricular education, professional and social experiment that enhances intellectual development for both students and faculty.
Laboratory of Vascular Physiology and Medicine
The vascular system is the connections of numerous blood vessels in our bodies. The system is comprised of artery, veins and capillaries which can. The major organs support it are heart, brain, lungs and kidneys. It is not easy to keep our vascular system healthy and functionally normal as multiple factors make an adverse impact on the vessels routinely. The malfunctions of the vascular system lead to life-threatening conditions like stroke, IHD, atherosclerosis and many more. Among many physiological reasons, ageing is the most crucial factor that makes a severe influence on the vascular system. The Ageing changes vascular thickness and its elastic recoiling system and alters cardiac hemodynamic The following factors may be considered as responsible for destabilising vascular physiology
MoU signed by Prof.Luis Gabriel Navar and Prof.M.S.Biradar for 1st official collaboration between the universities. Prof.Kusal Das and Prof.DSA Majid are the Principal collaborators for 3 yrs project. The work will be done under the care of Prof.Das at Laboratory of Vascular Physiology & Medicine, BLDE (Deemed to be University), India and Prof.Dewan S.A.Majid of Hypertension and Renal Centre of Excellence, Tulane University School of Medicine, USA. The Project is entitled “Hypoxia, metal exposure and cell signaling pathways: Evaluation of vascular integrity with renal functions in male albino rats supplemented with ascorbate and calcium channel blocker”
Best Practices in Department of Physiology
POUR TO POOR
Department of Physiology on 29-06-2019 decided to collect the money from teaching faculty on the eve of his/her and their family members birthdays and marriage anniversaries and donate the amount to poor patient in need.
PLASTIC FREE DEPARTMENT
Department of Physiology on 29-06-2019 decided to ban / not to use plastic plates, cups and glasses. It was decided to use steel glasses plates etc instead. Department purchased all steel glasses and plates with voluntary donations from teaching faculty members.
