The University of Würzburg is a member of the U15 group of German research universities. The university also belongs to the Coimbra Group. Many famous scientists, including 14 Nobel laureates, have conducted research, and taught in the university of Würzburg. Many new courses have been added to the traditional fields of medicine, theology, philosophy, and law. To name a few, there is nanostructure technology, functional materials, games engineering, modern China, digital humanities, media communication, human-computer systems, and museology. True to its guiding principle of "Science for Society," JMU seeks new discoveries in future-oriented research areas such as life sciences, health sciences, Molecular Chemistry and Materials, Quantum phenomena in new materials, digital society, cultural heritage, global change, norms and behavior. It is not just the range of courses that has grown. The university itself has also continuously expanded. The spacious Hubland campus was built on a hill on the eastern outskirts of the city. In 2011, the university also began expanding into the 39-hectare new North Campus. The establishment of cross-faculty research centers in as early as the early 1990s provided JMU enormous impetus, propelling the university into the top tier of German universities. Considering the promotion of young academics to be a particularly important task, the University of Würzburg has introduced Graduate School, which enables doctoral candidates at the university to receive structured training and further education. The discovery of x-rays in 1895 by physicist Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, first winner of the Nobel Prize for Physics is marked as the university’s highest intellectual achievement.
