The Institute for Physiology and Pathophysiology is a scientific institution assigned to the Faculty of Medicine of Heidelberg University. Its tasks are education and research in physiology.

 

About 80 people work in two departments, headed by the Professors Dr. Andreas Draguhn and Dr. Markus Hecker, their associated independent working groups lead by the Professors Dr. Alexander Groh, Dr. Oliver Kann and Dr. Hugo Marti, respectively, and the administration.

 

Members of the institute jointly teach lecture and lab courses in physiology for the approximately 450 students of medicine and dentistry admitted annually to Heidelberg University.

 

 

The short animated video "What is physiology" produced by The Physiological Society (UK) gives a brief introduction into the field of physiology. To watch the video on the society's YouTube channel click here.Dies ist ein externer Link
