Why a PhD at LUMC?

Regional and national collaborations

LUMC and its regional and national partners benefit from their collaborations. We work closely together with the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences and the LUMC Campus The Hague. At the Campus we work with our The Hague partners on big city health issues, such as Population Health Management.

The LUMC is situated on the Leiden Bio Science Park and is neighbour to 100+ biotech companies, among which many start-ups. We also collaborate with other Dutch universities and university medical centers and with hospitals in the Leiden-The Hague region. Last but not least, LUMC, Delft University of Technology and the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam participate in a collaboration known as “Medical Delta”, a network of life sciences, health and technology organisations.
