Manfred Monjé

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Manfred Friedrich Johannes Monjé (born 9 September 1901 in Wesel; † 14 September 1981 in Kiel) was a German sensory physiologist.


After graduating from the Konrad-Duden-Gymnasium Wesel, Monjé studied Protestant theology, philosophy, and human medicine at the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universität Greifswald and the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn from 1921 to 1925. In 1922 he became a corps student at Guestphalia Bonn.[1] In Bonn he received his doctorate (Dr. phil.) in 1925 and his medical degree (Dr. med.) in 1928.[2][3] In 1928 he became a scientific assistant at the Physiological Institute of the University of Rostock and in 1929 he habilitated in physiology. In 1936 he went to the University of Leipzig as a private lecturer, which appointed him as a non-scheduled associate professor of physiology in 1938. In 1942 he moved to the Reichsuniversität Posen as an associate professor, where he became chair in 1944. From 1951 he worked with Hans-Felix Piper in the Eye Clinic of the Christian-Albrechts-University in Kiel. In 1955 he was appointed to the Kiel Chair of Applied Physiology and Sensory Physiology. Guestfalia Greifswald awarded him the ribbon in 1957 (in Bonn).[1] In 1966 he became emeritus professor.
