The Institute of Physiology is responsible for teaching and research in the broad field of Physiology. We have a commitment for the Aachen model courses in medicine, the aim of which is to better combine preclinical and clinical elements already in the first terms of medical students.

Currently, there are three research groups at the institute, which have a focus on Molecular Physiology, Cellular Physiology and Neurophysiology.
