The Medical Research Unit of the Albert Schweitzer Hospital was established in Lambarénémarker, Gabonmarker, to study major causes of disease burden in the local population. Since its foundation 25 years ago, it has become a leading African research centre, specialising in pathophysiology and treatment of highly prevalent infectious diseases found in sub-Saharan Africa.

The initial goals have been broadened and now include training in clinical and laboratory research for local and international investigators.

Vision and Goals

In future, Lambarénémarker will be acting as competence centre of further education for doctors in the range of drug discovery in Africa. Along with the Vienna School of Clinical Research (VSCR), a member of the European Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnerschip (EDCTP) and the research laboratory at the Albert Schweizer Hospital, Lambaréné wants to provide a further education program for African doctors. This program will be focusing on diseases like HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis. By combating these three major diseases, the centre simultaneously seeks to reduce poverty as a whole. From this location, Lambarénémarker will also operate as a “flying school”, which – if necessary – is capable of organizing further education courses concerning drug discovery in other African countries.

The hospital in Lambaréné, as well as the life and philosophy of Albert Schweitzer, also inspired in 1956 Larry Mellon to found the Hospital Albert Schweitzer Haiti in Deschapellesmarker, Haitimarker.
