Approximately 3500 life science researchers
In Utrecht we drive innovations in human and veterinary health care, with careful consideration of our environment. Our research is interdisciplinary by nature and combines fundamental, clinical, translational and applied research from Utrecht University's Faculty of Science, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Faculty of Medicine (UMC Utrecht).
It ranges from molecule to man, from organism to population and from bench to bedside. It is our vision that interdisciplinary research and technology development together create the basis for the translation towards innovative solutions for societal challenges.
