The Chair of Human Biology

The Department of Human Biology (Prof. Dr. Michael Schemann) was founded in 2002. It covers the broad spectrum of functional anatomy and physiology of the human body. As an integral part of the Centre of Life and Food Science in Freising-Weihenstephan the Department of Human Biology has particular interest in the gastrointestinal tract. Research projects are therefore concerned with the functions of the gastrointestinal tract and their regulation.
