Abstract

The historical outline of the Physiology Department in the Medical Faculty of Danylo Halytskyi Lviv National Medical University (LNMU) dedicated to the 125 years anniversary is presented. The department was founded by Adolf Beck at 1895. Professor Beck was not merely a scholar, with first-rate credentials for having developed methods for the study of the cerebral cortex and neurophysiology, but also a man of great personal courage. Adolf Beck also worked in fields of general physiology, such as visceral and sensory function and laboratory medicine. He also arranged a local physiological society and the Institute of Physiology of the university. He did not receive the Nobel Prize despite being nominated several times. His followers Wiktor Tychowski, Mechyslav Wierzuchowski, were next heads of Physiology Department of LNMU in the interwar time. The impact of Anatoliy Vorobjev, Yakiv Sklayrov, Eugen Panasuk in Physiology and on the development Physiology Department in second half of 20th century is presented. The modern achievement of the Lviv Physiological School is described too.

Keywords: history of hysiology; physiology; Danylo Halytskyi Lviv national medical university; experimental medicine; science.
