Frank W. Stahnisch's research attempts to create in-depth understanding for the development and necessities of basic research in medicine and the health sciences. It further places medicine and health care in the wider context of society and culture with their specific traditions of healing, inquiry, health care and patient support. Dr. Stahnisch has published widely on the history of experimental biomedicine and the neurosciences, including one monograph on 19th century French experimental physiology and another monograph on the after-effects of laboratory physiology in Central Europe. A third monograph on early developments leading to the neurosciences as an interdisciplinary field in the 20th century is currently under review.
