Human physiology seeks to answer unresolved questions about how our bodies work. It provides the basis of modern medicine, and connects science and health.
The human physiology group at Massey Institute of Food Science and Technology offers an exciting range of programmes and undertakes research that makes a difference to the wellbeing of the nation.
Studying human physiology offers exciting opportunities to explore how our bodies carry out their numerous and often complex daily activities.
Explore our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes where you can combine physiology with other disciplines such as nutrition, sport and exercise, biochemistry or molecular biology to gain multidisciplinary knowledge and skills.
Our research focuses on the key areas of the cardiovascular, immune and endocrine systems, with a particular emphasis on the development of these systems during gestation and their primary cellular functions. Key research areas include:
The Human Physiology Group has a range of facilities including New Zealand’s only two Bod Pods and a Dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) unit. We also have other facilities that span multiple disciplines, including biochemistry and in-vitro laboratories for cell culture and isolated tissue work.
