The Department of Physiology has a long and rich history. The earliest story of the department is related to Dr. O.Kilborn, a Canadian man who offered the first Physiology course in this university at the beginning of last century. Dr. L. Kilborn, son of Dr. O.Kilborn, became the first director of the department in 1921. The Department of Physiology has grown rapidly in teaching and research under the leadership of all previous directors. Over the years, we formed a dynamic faculty team with rich experience in teaching and research. The department currently has 11 faculty members, including 3 professors, 5 associated professors, 2 lecturers, and 1 laboratory technician.


The department have made fruitful efforts in teaching content reform, textbook editing, and improvement in teaching methods and conditions. We conduct several courses for undergraduates, graduate students, and foreign students. In recent years, we have won more than 20 university-level collective and individual Excellent Teaching Achievement Prizes, and we have been rewarded school-level Excellent Teaching Achievement First Prize for six consecutive years. We have completed 10 provincial and university teaching reform projects, participated in writing several textbooks of physiology.


Our research mainly focuses on neurophysiology, reproductive physiology, respiratory physiology and cardiovascular physiology. Our researches have been supported by National Natural Science Fund, Scientific Research Starting Foundation for Returned Overseas Scholars, CMB Fund, for many years. We have published more than 30 research papers, including 27 SCI papers in the past 5 years.
