Physiology

The purpose of research in physiology is, inter alia, to gain a better understanding of the circuits of the heart, of mechanisms for transporting water through the kidneys as well as of how ions are transported over cellular membranes. In addition, the goal is to investigate how muscles function under oxygen-free conditions as well as their dependence on sodium and potassium ions.
