About us

Curiosity-driven science reveals key components of how we can improve our lives through medicine, technology and prevention.

Life Sciences research in Utrecht is diverse. The long and rich history of Utrecht University and its strategic partners and collaborators, breathes hope into our journey of understanding life. Curiosity-driven science reveals key components of how we can improve our lives through medicine, technology and prevention. We're striving to create sustainable solutions for our constantly changing world, and to ensure a healthy future for subsequent generations

We focus on three thematic pillars, One Health, Personalised Medicine & Health, and Regenerative Medicine & Stem Cells. Underlying these themes is the Science for Life domain, which seeds the building blocks of life into all of our scientific questions.

Our four hubs aim to bring researchers from different disciplines together to work on societal relevant issues and scientific breakthroughs within the framework of our thematic pillars. They stimulate productive and long lasting multidisciplinary collaborations with public and/or private stakeholders thereby creating shared value and, hence, societal and economic benefit.
