University of Lübeck

Research and teaching at the Universität zu Lübeck started in the field of medicine, but our informatics, natural sciences, and engineering sections today encompass much more. The common element among them is their emphasis on life science, also mirrored by our motto: Im Focus das Leben.


In 1973, the Universität zu Lübeck became an independent scientific institution in the state of Schleswig-Holstein.


We offer degree programmes in medicine, computer science, engineering, and natural sciences. Interdisciplinary programmes encompassing natural sciences, computer science, and medicine offer practical and up-to-date education underpinned by the highest standard of healthcare. 


The German Research Foundation (DFG) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) promote scientific exchange and joint research projects between the University of Lübeck and the Xiàn Jiaotong University in laser nanomedicine. They approved the application of Prof. Alfred Vogel from the Institute of Biomedical Optics at the University of Lübeck and Prof. Zhenxi Zhang from the School of Life Science and Technology at Xiàn Jiaotong University and are funding a three-year mobility project with 183,000 euros.
