MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR

 

What is the future of Physiology at the University of Toronto?

 

Will there still be a Department of Physiology at this University in 2021?

 

 

I am looking forward to my first Departmental Meeting this coming Monday, where I will briefly set out my vision for the Department.

Hope to see all faculty there.

Best regards,

Graham L. Collingridge, FRS, FMedSci, FRSB, FBPhS
