Department of Physiology, Medical Biology and Biological Physics

Educational work
The following disciplines are taught at the department: physiology, medical biology, and biological physics to domestic and foreign students of 1-2 courses of dental, pharmaceutical and medical faculties.

In teaching, students can use guidelines for students, test tasks, situational tasks, multimedia development of practical classes.

The result of the student's work is the lesson protocol, which includes the results of experiments, schemes, contours of regulation, etc. A scientific circle is held for students every month, which helps to expand the horizons and awareness of students in topical issues of modern physiology.

Methodical work
The material and technical equipment of the department meets the standards and requirements for the departments of higher educational medical institutions of III-IV levels of accreditation.
Developed guidelines for students, teachers, as well as workbooks for first-year students for all forms of education.

Scientific work
During the existence of the department 214 articles have been published, including international (72) and about seven hundred reports have been prepared, 8 copyright certificates and 8 patents have been obtained, 12 candidate dissertations have been defended, 5 doctoral dissertations are currently being completed. Thanks to the scientific work of the department, the following practical results were introduced, which improved the quality of life of the individual, individual work regime, work efficiency, assessment of general risks of daily activities for the health of individuals of different ages.

History of the department
The Department of Physiology of Physiology, Medical Biology and Biological Physics was founded in 1992. Its founder and organizer was Professor MD, Kozlov AG,

For the first 1.5 years during the formation of the department, it was headed by candidates of biological sciences Andriichenko SV, Bezusko AV, doctors of biological sciences.

Since 1994 the department is headed by VK Rybalchenko, since then not only educational work (including for the first time the rating control of knowledge - Prof. VK Rybalchenko and VI Malyuk), but also scientific work becomes more active. in collaboration with the Laboratory of Membranology of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. The consequence of this community was the discovery without a receptor mechanism of the interaction of biologically active substances with the cell membrane, the creation of a modern model of the molecular organization of biological membranes.

Theoretical and experimental researches are carried out in the field of scientific work, a new direction on non-receptor mechanisms, effects of bioregulators was developed.

Since 2008, the department is headed by Professor ZD Skrypnyuk. The main area of ​​research is information therapy for the treatment of various pathologies.

Since 2017, the department is headed by Polyakov OA The main area of ​​work is the study of the functional state of health and biological age of foreign students.

The department pays attention to updating the methods of scientific pedagogical skills with the use of modern interactive technologies.
