Translational Physiology Research Group
The Translational Physiology Research Group undertakes translational research from cellular to human models, primarily examining the effects of environmental stimuli (including physical activity, age, diet and environment). This work maximises our understanding of human physiology, the underlying physiological mechanisms of action, and ultimately the laws of life.
Our work bridges in vitro and in vivo (human) research models, and has both basic science and direct clinical applications. Indeed, our ability to demonstrate proofs of concept in vitro before graduating into human participants, or conversely, to test a mechanistic hypothesis arising from human research in an in vitro model to is a particular strength of this group.
