Award-winning Medicine

The foundation’s oak tree stands in the foundation garden with a view of the Elbe.

It is the model for The Jung Foundation’s logo, which symbolises the foundation’s basic ideas and goals:

The roots of the foundation are the
humanitarian nature of the founder,
the trunk stands for its energy,
while the Aesculapian snake, the
symbol of medicine, serves as
a support.

The three branches represent the three prize categories: The first marks the beginning, the second the high point and the third the balance of success of a life’s work in medical research.

The leaves are symbols for the prize winners and the fruits stand for medical achievements.
