In the Physiology Department we are involved with the Centre for talented youth in Ireland (CTYI) through our Outreach programme.
In the summer the Department of Physiology hosted a week long summer course for primary school children organized by the Centre for Talented Youths Ireland. “Fantastic Physiology” was held in the Department of Physiology’s undergraduate teaching laboratory and instructed by Aidan Karr and David Burns (PhD trainees) along with Sonia Thomas (MSc trainee) and co-ordinated by Dr Marcella Burke.
Students engaged in interactive lessons and practicals for five days based around the physiological systems of the body.
- Skeletal muscle physiology
- Digestive and GI physiology
- Cardiovascular physiology
