Cutting-Edge Medicine

Research at the cutting edge

In close collaboration with university hospitals, scientists at the University of Zurich (UZH) are involved in all areas of biomedical research - both in human and veterinary medicine.

Increasingly, also with the help of interdisciplinary collaborations, UZH makes an important contribution in the transfer of scientific research findings into clinical application. The UZH Foundation supports various projects in cutting-edge medicine with private donations.

Supporting cutting-edge medicine


With the existing funds of the UZH, innovative and interdisciplinary approaches in cutting-edge medicine cannot always be fully financed. The UZH needs additional third-party funding to open up new fields of research. As a donor, you help to reduce the suffering of humans and animals through new findings in cutting-edge medicine.
