Background: Undoubtedly, the research studies have played both a decisive and edifying role in the emergence and development of Physiology as a separate science. The research and particularly, the experimental studies, were the milestones for the development of physiology as a distinct science and discipline, used in both general and specific biological and medical education. Physiology is an important and permanent source of research and modeling methods of vital processes among the fundamental and preclinical medical and biological sciences, such as pathophysiology and pharmacology. This short essay does not claim to comprehensively describe the development of physiological research studies within Nicolae Testemitanu State University of Medicine and Pharmacy over 75 years since the university foundation. However, this present chronological presentation with elements of analysis provides historical and current data on the researchers and their research papers, while working as collaborators within the Department of Physiology at our university.
Conclusions: This historical review brings conclusive evidence upon the research work conducted by the academic staff and their study results, since the foundation of the Department of Physiology, which have greatly reflected the international research trends in the field of physiological sciences. Current physiological research studies, conducted at the Department of Physiology, are aimed at studying the physiological markers and predictors of different diseases, involving cardiovascular and respiratory systems by means of psychophysiology.
