The department is currently headed by Professor Yan-ai Mei, and has 5 full professors and 5 associate professors. Since 2002, the department has contributed to the development of Neurobiology and Physiology sub-disciplines. Biophysics was chosen as a Shanghai key discipline in 2007. The Department of Physiology and Biophysics offers Ph.D. and Masters Degrees in Biophysics and Neurobiology. Four major research areas of the Department include Neurobiology, Endocrine Physiology, Protein Structure and Function Analysis, and Computational and Theoretical Biology.
