The Physiology Cluster of the Department of Life Sciences integrates existing faculty and newly appointed staff to advance distinctive areas of animal and plant physiology, including "Molecular and Cellular Physiology," "Salt Tolerance in Higher Plants," "Bioenergetics," "Physiology, Pharmacology, and Oncology," "Establishment of Plant Endophyte and Transgenic Plant Systems," "Regulation of Animal and Plant Hormone Physiology," "Small RNA Mechanisms and Plant Responses to Environmental Stress," and "Physiology of Environmental Pollutants."

The Physiology Cluster publishes diverse research findings covering animal and plant physiology, laying the foundation for basic animal and plant physiology in Life Sciences research.

Physiology serves as the foundation of biological research. The Physiology Cluster encourages undergraduate students to actively participate in research projects, fostering a deep understanding of basic physiology and nurturing an enthusiasm for academic research. Meanwhile, graduate students learn advanced biological function knowledge and receive relevant scientific training to cultivate talented physiologists, inoculating new vitality into our country's field of Life Sciences.
