The Science of Life
The Science of Life is a short careers booklet published by The Physiological Society that provides an introduction to the world of physiology with its focus on the science of how the body works. The booklet points out that students taking science and biology courses at GCSE and A-levels are already learning about physiology. The booklet seeks to encourage students to consider further study and careers in the field. The booklet explains that modern physiology integrates molecular, cellular, systems and whole body aspects of biology and this is what distinguishes it from other life sciences.
