We're exploring the biochemical foundations of life.

Without understanding how things work, we can’t fix them when they’re broken. In this day of modern diseases, this is critical. Fundamental science - biology, chemistry, physics, math – is our toolbox with which we can make smart solutions for medicine, our environment and technology.

All Nobel Prize winners are awarded for their discoveries that fill a gap in our current knowledge. The ‘spill-over’ from their findings generate progress and shape our society. We recognize the importance of scientific curiosity and have created the Science for Life domain in Utrecht that serves as a breeding ground for our innovation ecosystem. 

The research and discoveries in this domain bring diversity, insight and detail to our understanding of how life and its components work. Focus areas include molecular and cellular biology, pharmaceutical science and plant biology. Using highly advanced technologies, such as NMR spectroscopy, bioinformatics and nanotechnology, we’re finding solutions for health and environmental challenges.
