Hypergeometric functions have played an important role in mathematics and physics in the last centuries. Multivariate extensions of the classical hypergeometric functions have appeared recently in different applications. I will discuss research problems which relate these functions to the representation theory of Lie algebras and quantum superintegrable systems.
