Due to political disagreements Schönlein had to emigrate to Zurich where he taught until 1839. After that, it drew him to Berlin into service under King Frederick William IV of Prussia. He was a professor at the university and at the same time personal physician of the king. In 1859, Johann Lukas Schönlein retired.
