Our Mission


The Department of Biomedicine is a joint venture of the University, the University Hospital, and the University Children’s Hospital in Basel. It unites basic and clinical scientists to advance our understanding of health and disease and to develop pioneering therapies benefiting the lives of patients in areas of unmet need.

The department fosters curiosity-driven and interdisciplinary science, providing a stimulating environment to train the next generation of scientific  leaders. With state-of-the-art facilities and a cutting-edge research environment, it nurtures a spirit of innovation.

The department is strategically situated in the heart of Basel in close vicinity to the hospital, to other academic and industrial biomedical institutions, contributing to one of Europe’s top life science hubs.
