The department has various laboratory dedicated to undergraduate and post graduate research. Major area in which research are going on in the department include:
Cardiovascular research in the department aims to understand the function of molecules, cells and organ systems comprising the cardiovascular system in both health and disease.
Blood and Coagulation
The Special Coagulation Laboratory is one of our foremost resources for special coagulation studies. State-of-the-art tests performed here with enhanced diagnostic capabilities for congenital and acquired bleeding disorders, hyper coagulable evaluations, platelet disorders, and autoimmune coagulation disorders.
The aim of the Gastrointestinal Physiology Laboratory is to further understand the regulation of gastrointestinal motility in both health and in disease. The laboratories collaborate on projects with a shared interest in gastrointestinal smooth muscle cells, interstitial cells of Cajal, and enteric nerves.
The Neurophysiology Lab in the department offers patients complete diagnostic testing for neurological conditions. This specialty lab is staffed by skilled technicians who use state-of-the-art equipment to perform the following tests:
- Auditory Brainstem Response (ABR)
- Electroencephalogram (EEG)
- Sleep-Deprived Electroencephalogram
- Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEP)
- Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP)
Nerve and Muscle Physiology
Human movement is dependent on the neural strategy in activating skeletal muscles that have variable mechanical properties. Neuromuscular Physiology Laboratory identifies the neural and mechanical mechanisms underlying motor skills. We welcome undergraduate/graduate students and research scholars in Neuromuscular Physiology Laboratory.
The Department of Physiology (PFT Lab) is equipped with computerized complete pulmonary functions tests machine for spirometry, lung volume and diffusion tests, portable spirometer, respirometer, nebulizers etc. The laboratory is helpful to various investigators studying the various aspects of respiratory physiology and their clinical implication. It also provides invaluable support to the clinical side.
