The scientific work at the faculty was started under the direction the Academician of the Kazakh SSR Academy of Sciences A.P.Polosuhin. Research on age physiology has demonstrated the possibility of cardiac activity and breath restoration after clinical death in newborn organisms due to their stability to hypoxcia and a surplus of carboxida gas during a longer period of time than that of the adults.
The first post- graduate student of the facultchy was M.F.Avazbakieva. She worked at the KazSU from 1938 till 1986. She was an assistant teadur, senior teacher, assistant professor, biological faculty decan and head of the chair of human and animal physiology from 1947 to 1981.
M.F.Avazbakieva is an honored worker in the field of science of Kazakhstan, the founder of ecological physiology in Kazakhstan. Her studies are devoted to the major physiological functions, work ability and endurance of humans and animals under high mountains and desert. The conditions results of this scientific research have formed the bases of numerous articles and two monographies – The Influence of of Kazakhstan and Kirghizia climate on the human body" (1958), "Sketches on Climatophisiology" (1974), which are reference books for physiologists up to this day.
From 1981 to 1990 the head of the chair chair of human and animal physiology was Dusembin H.D., the Professor, Ccorresponding Member of the Academy of Sciences. The theory on stimulation and inhibition of lactation he developed has gained wide recognition among professionals. His research carry both a fundamental, and applied character in the area of neirohumoral regulation of lactation, endocrinology, ecological physiology, adaptation of the body to extreme conditions. Developed by him and braking of a lactation has received wide recognition among experts. His researches carry both fundamental, and applied character in area нейрогуморальной regulation of a lactation, endocrinology, ecological physiology, adaptation of an organism to extreme conditions.
The faculty has old scientific and pedagogical connections with Institute of physiology by I.P.Pavlova (Sanct-Petersburg), with Institute age physiologies (Moscow), Institute of evolutionary physiology and biochemistry by I.M.Sechenova (Sanct Petersburg), Institute of physiology by Bogomolca (Kiev), with universities of Moscow, Sanct Petersburg, Tver, etc.
In frameworks ScRP «Immunostimulators a natural and synthetic origin as factors of increase of resistency of an organism of animals in conditions of environmental contamination» search new immunostimulate preparations among for the first time synthesized mono-4-and di-4,4- assistant derivatives piperidyne is carried out. Their synthesis is carried out by laboratory of organic synthesis of Institute of chemistry by Becturova MEdSc РК, academician NASc RK, d.ch.sc. Praliev K.D., d.ch.sc. Ю В.К., k.ch.sc. Fomicheva E.V. - development of new medical products.
The faculty has old scientific and pedagogical connections with the I.P.Pavlov Institute of Physiology (St-Peterburg), with the Institute of age Physiologs (Moscow), I.M.Sechenov Institute of Evolutionary Physiology and Biochemistry (St Peterburg), the Bogomolets Institute of Physiology (Kiev), with the universities of Moscow, St Peterburg, Tver, and others.
The chair of the human and animal physiology and biophysics organizes the conference dedicated the 75-th anniversary of the University and 70-th anniversary of the chair of the human and animal physiology and 35-th anniversary of the chair of biophysics.
