Scientific departments are currently grouped according to their research interests:
Neuroscientific research covers a broad spectrum of problems ranging from the mechanisms of neurotransmitter release and actions of transmitters on their receptors to integrative functions of the central nervous system, such as memory, regulation of circadian rhythms and pathophysiological mechanisms of epilepsies.
Research concerning the physiology and pathophysiology of the cardiovascular system focuses on the developmental aspects of cardiac contractile function, experimental hypertension and renovascular physiology. Special attention is being paid to the role of proteins and cell membranes.
Research of metabolism covers problems related to cell metabolism, functions of mitochondria, membrane transport and signal transduction are investigated at both the cellular and intercellular level.
