The Institute of Physiology was founded in 1853; today it provides an efficient infrastructure.
Currently, special emphasis is given to research of physiology of epithelial function, physiology of ion channels, including regulation by membrane lipids, as well as systemic neurobiology. Scientists at the Institute of Physiology collaborate closely with the Cluster of Excellence 'The Future Ocean' and with many renowned research laboratories worldwide.
In addition to research, teaching plays a significant role at the Institute of Physiology. The institute is greatly engaged in the faculty’s e-learning projects.
