The Medical Biophysics Group at the Institute of Physiology and Pathophysiology was founded in 1990 by Rainer H.A. Fink when he came from the University of Adelaide to take up his professorship in Heidelberg.
The work of the group covers various research areas in the fields of physiology, biophysics and basic clinical research. The interdisciplinarity is borne by researchers from various fields of natural and medical sciences, including physicians, physicists, chemists and clinical doctors.
Teaching is covered for medical students in physiology and in molecular physiology and biophysics for advanced medical students and students graduating in natural sciences. For interested students it is possible to carry out a PhD thesis in medicine (Dr. med. or Dr. Sc. hum.), a PhD thesis in physics, or a Master's (Diplom) thesis in physics.
