The underlying principle of human biology (and all animal biology really) is the fundamental relationship between structure and function. Human anatomy is designed by the processes of evolution to be structured in a way that allows the necessary functions of the organ or tissue in question to be performed efficiently. So medical research looks at relating observable structure to theoretical functions, or known functions to some relevant structure. This allows a full understanding of human physiology and means that drugs and treatments for diseases where function is impaired can be designed. Stability and homeostasis are the goals of all physiological processes. The mechanisms that occur within the body have the job of maintaining the constant stable environment in which we function best. Disease compromises this and hence impairs the functioning of the body
