Jung Foundation for Science and Research
The Jung Foundation for Science and Research is committed to promoting the advancement of human medicine in Germany and internationally across disciplines.
It supports basic research in human medicine and especially the further research of clinical importance which builds upon it and thus contributes to projects which are the starting point to the development of new treatments.
To this end, the foundation establishes platforms for scientific communication beyond national and disciplinary borders. The foundation is dedicated to harmony between theory and practice which radiates inspiration, incentives and innovations.
The foundation awards three prizes to top researchers every year. They rank among the highest endowed medical awards throughout Europe with a total sum of €540,000: the Ernst Jung Prize for Medicine, the Ernst Jung Gold Medal for Medicine and the Ernst Jung Career Advancement Award for Medical Research. The award ceremony is held in Hamburg in May every year.
