Research Profile


Research at our university is closely intertwined with work in the fields of Natural Sciences and Informatics. Therefore, most of our clusters integrate non-medical disciplines into their programmes in order to address their issues from diverse standpoints.

At Lübeck Medical School internal funding programmes are a key instrument used to emphasise specific fields. Over time, this has enabled the establishment of a research focus on three fields:

  1. Infection & Inflammation
  2. Medical Genetics
  3. Brain, Bahaviour and Metabolism

These are supplemented by the interdisciplinary field of Biomedical Engineering, where a broad spectrum of issues are addressed, with a focus on developing medical imaging techniques for diagnostics or possibly to replace invasive procedures.
