Welcome to the Department of Physiologie

Physiology is the science of the processes governing life. It describes the physical, biochemical and information processing functions of living systems at the level of the entire organism, the organs and the cells. The Department of Physiology provides under-graduate and post-graduate education for medical- and life-science students. It carries out research mainly in the field of heart- and neurophysiology. More>>


Licht in Sicht: molekularer Lichtschalter gegen Blindheit

Berner Forschenden ist es gelungen, erblindeten Mäusen das Augenlicht zurückzugeben. Dazu haben sie noch intakte Zellen der Netzhaut biotechnologisch so modifiziert, dass sie als Ersatzfotorezeptoren die Rolle der abgestorbenen Lichtsensoren im Auge übernehmen.
