Cellular and Systems Physiology

The Cellular and Systems Physiology (CSP) research group focuses on measuring and understanding the function of living cell, organs and systems. Our interests span the range from molecular events, through to cellular and systems level function. We have expertise across a number of key experimental techniques, including electrophysiology at a molecular, cellular, and systems level; functional characterisation of smooth, skeletal and cardiac muscle; protein characterisation and quantification; developing animal models of disease. Our goal is to understand the physiological function as a foundation for developing new diagnostics and therapeutics to help cure or treat human disease. The CSP is composed of six research teams that occupy level 3NW of the Wallace Wurth building.

The CSP Group undertakes research in: 

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Sensory Neuroscience
  • Membrane and Cellular Biophysics
  • Fetal and Developmental Research
  • Neurobiology Research Lab
