Mission: What we stand for

Our mission represents our reason for existence, what connects our staff members.

  • In everything we do, we are convinced of the plasticity and changeability of human beings and of society.
  • Every subdiscipline of our department has a solid individual identity, with a strong autonomy on subject-matter expertise. Trust, respect and appreciation for each other form the basis for our collaborations. The binding factor in our department is the interaction between the innerness and the appearance.
  • Thanks to our multidisciplinarity, we conduct excellent, state-of-the-art, societally relevant basic and clinical research on the most complex human organ system.
  • Our mission puts emphasis on our unity, as well as our great diversity. Both of these elements are considered strengths and opportunities for putting us on the map as a department and for our future development.
