Foundation: 1964

Mission: Information not localized

Vision: Following our founding as the Academy of Medicine in 1964, the first half-century of the Universität zu Lübeck was marked by our profile in medical research and teaching, leading to successful growth as a life science university. We were transformed into the Lübeck Foundation in 2015, thereby joining the centuries-old, solid, foundation culture of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck. In view of our closely networked research in medicine, natural sciences, informatics, and engineering, we are particularly aware at the Universität zu Lübeck of our responsibilities to society. Therefore, we strive to apply scientific knowledge to advance medicine, and contribute our share to improve health, treat illnesses, and ensure just and peaceful cohabitation of humankind. Through our research-driven, practical teaching approach, we pursue a comprehensive educational programme to help prepare individuals who are ready to play their role to responsibly serve our society.
