Message from the Head

Welcome to the Department of Physiology & Biophysics!

Physiology is the science of life, encompassing studies at the cellular and molecular level, right up to the entire organism and is an important component of any health profession program. I would like to extend an invitation to you to explore this site to discover more about our department, our talented faculty and their research (that has implications for many human diseases).

We offer a wide range of undergraduate courses as well as a PhD and Master’s program.

Halifax is a wonderful place to live and study. Find out more about the beautiful Dalhousie campus.

I invite you to investigate this site and please contact me if you have any questions about our department or its programs.

Dr. Elizabeth Cowley
