Programme Description
The Masters in Physiology forms part of the postgraduate programme in Physiology at the University of Valencia,
awarded a Mención de Calidad (hallmark of high quality), and stemming from the Doctoral Programme in Physiology,
which has also held the Mención de Calidad since 2004-2005. The programme is a response to the large number of
students interested in pursuing their doctoral thesis in such an important and relevant field of science.

The field of physiology is extremely wide, and its totality is inaccessible for research purposes. The Masters
concentrates therefore on the most innovative aspects of cardiovascular physiology, and oxidative stress and its

          Postgraduate – DISE Information Service                                          Page 1 of 2
applications in biomedicine. In any of these fields it is necessary to understand and make correct use of increasingly
sophisticated methodologies, and part of the course will therefore be dedicated to training the students in the
methodological aspects of research, such as treatment of experimental data, statistical inference, the use of basic
techniques in physiological research, and the use of new digital technology to analyse signals and images obtained in
laboratory experiments.

Research into physiology has an impact in many areas of knowledge, as it is one of the most fundamental sciences in
the health field. In fact there are numerous scientific journals indexed in the database, and many Nobel Prizes in the
health field have been for work in physiology.

The main objective of this Masters is therefore to train professionals in the field of physiology, capable of planning
and directing work groups, developing projects with original and innovative ideas, as well as training competitive
professionals prepared for incorporation in public or private research positions.

This objective, based on a module of introduction to physiology research, will be applied to the specific study fields to
be developed: cardiovascular physiology, and oxidative stress and its applications in biomedicine.
