Universität zu Lübeck (UZL) is one of the highest ranked universities in the German-speaking world, and focusses research and training on life sciences, as reflected in the motto: Im Focus das Leben. Programmes are offered in medicine, informatics, molecular life science, computational life sciences, and medical engineers, as well as a master’s program in biomedical engineering in collaboration with Lübeck University of Applied Sciences. Our internationally renowned research is both innovative and knowledge-oriented, and driven by intensive and interdisciplinary collaboration at the university. In addition, we work continuously together with other national and international research institutions to improve the quality of research and education.

The Institute for Robotics and Cognitive Systems at the University of Lübeck focuses on medical robotics, an interdisciplinary field between medicine, computer science, physics, mathematics and engineering. Scientists from our group designed the first medical robotic systems. In particular, our robotic radiosurgery methods are replacing conventional radiosurgery, and over 1.000.000 cancer patients have been treated worldwide. Members of the institute have initiated large-scale and nationwide research efforts. The main topics of research include mathematical methods for motion correlation and prediction, as well as methods for image-guided navigation and inverse planning.
