It also supports development aid projects, such as compulsory internships in medical studies.
Maria’s parents, Friederike Ladenburger and Dr. med. Clemens Ladenburger, explain the reasons for the establishment of the foundation: “Maria studied medicine full of enthusiasm, commitment and zest for life in order to be there as a doctor for her fellow human beings. She was and she stays a sunshine for her family, for her friends and friends. The foundation wants to pass on the gift of a lifetime to students and in their sense set a sign of humanity. ”
Prof. Dr. Hans-Jochen Schiewer, Rector of the University of Freiburg, emphasizes how important the University is to this foundation: “Maria Ladenburger was involved in her studies for other students and for educational projects in other countries. It stands for everything that distinguishes our university: cosmopolitanism, tolerance and curiosity about everything new. We are very proud that Maria – like her parents and grandparents – studied at the University of Freiburg and got involved here. This foundation is a moving and great gesture from her family, for which I would like to express my heartfelt thanks on behalf of the entire university. ”
This is joined by Prof. Dr. med. Kerstin Krieglstein, Dean of the Medical Faculty, commented: “Maria Ladenburger had made the right choice with her doctoral degree in human medicine: she wanted to look after and help people – just as she supported her fellow students during her studies. This generous foundation of the family touches us all very much. ”
