Physiology laboratory is the part of the Faculty of Medicine, Universitas Brawijaya (FKUB). The Laboratory of Physiology formed along with the establishment of the College of Medicine, Malang (STKM), which is dated 14 September 1963. The building of Laboratory of Physiology was originally located in Celaket Hospital (now known as Dr. Saiful Anwar Malang) precisely around the forensic building. However, since STKM joined the School of Medicine, Universitas Brawijaya,  Laboratory of physiology building moved to building FKUB precisely in Biochemistry  Laboratory Building (which is now). Then, move back into Building B FKUB until today. The laboratory of Physiology that examines the physiology as holistically  and analitically. But with the development of science and complexity of  the physiological phenomenon in humans, it is initiated to develop molecular physiology laboratory. The developmental of Laboratory of Physiology, FKUB since the beginning of the outbreak began to develop and assess ideas about obesity and several diseases associated with obesity. This idea has been proposed by our initiators Prof. Dr. dr. Rasjad M. Indra, MS. Thanks to him and the team in 2005, Physiology Science Laboratory is developing into Physiology Laboratory Science Division of Molecular Physiology. Until now Laboratory of  Physiology Science Division of Molecular Physiology always committed to serve the research and researchers, academics and the public. The Research experience of this laboratory  has been quite encouraging as it is experienced in research on preadipocyte, obesity, mesenchymal stem cells, neurogenerative, cancer stem cells, atherosclerosis etc.


Being the National Standard  as a Laboratory of  Physiology which Superior in adipocytes research


To develop the molecular research in the Laboratory of Physiology.


  1. findings nutrition genetics and lifestyle as a risk factors for metabolic syndrome and obesity related diseases through nutriproteomics approach, nutrigenomics and nutrigenetics.
  2. findings biomarkers associated with adipocyte dysfunction prevention, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and related diseases in the Laboratory of Physiology.
