The University of Luxembourg is committed to being a driver in Luxembourg’s ambition for a robust health, medical and biomedicine ecosystem. The area of medicine, nursing sciences, health and life sciences is a top priority for the University, which strives to achieve international excellence in research and education.
An important mission of the Department of Life Sciences and Medicine (DLSM) is to train the next generation of scientists and healthcare professionals by offering state-of-the-art teaching programs in Biology, Medicine and Nursing. DLSM research activities combine basic and translational, wet lab and computational research to address critical questions in human health and disease, with a focus on tumor biology.
The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) is an interdisciplinary research centre at the University of Luxembourg combining expertise in a broad spectrum of disciplines - from computational biology to clinical and experimental neuroscience – to study the brain and its diseases. Research at the LCSB focuses on neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. The LCSB has established strategic partnerships with scientific partners worldwide and with all major biomedical research units in Luxembourg. The centre also carries out collaborative projects with hospitals and research-oriented companies, accelerating the translation of fundamental research results into clinical applications, for the benefit of patients.
