An additional task was to provide medical services for prison inmates, an experience that initiated his research on typhus . In parallel he was asked to set up a clinic for otorhinolaryngology  . Following unsuccessful applications for permanent positions in Greifswald, Marburg and Vienna he was finally nominated by the university of Halle.
But there was a problem, for von Mering was Catholic and the statutes of the University of Halle required protestant professors; a personal decision of Emperor Wilhelm II was needed to overrule these regulations.

Whilst in Strasburg, Freiherr von Mering married Maria Fuxius from Trier on 17th April , and they had four children by the time they moved to Halle. As his income increased substantially, he built an impressive villa near the Leopoldina - the German academy of natural sciences - in the university area and moved there with his family in Von Mering published a famous textbook on internal medicine in .

Typically enough, all his discoveries were the result of collaboration. Extraordinarius von Mering, working mainly in biochemistry and physiology. Minkowski wrote:. This conversation was followed by a discussion on how to do the experiment and finally, Minkowski mentioned that this question should be studied in a dog following pancreatectomy. The animal survived and initially seemed to be doing well. The day after the operation, von Mering had to travel to Colmar because his father-in-law was suffering from severe pneumonia.
He had to stay for one week. In the meantime the dog, which had been clean before, started to urinate more and more frequently in the laboratory.
