LUMC medical research profiles

The LUMC aims at identifying the causes of disease, improving diagnosis, prevention, and ultimately developing effective treatments. Current science crosses traditional borders. Within LUMC different specialists work together around seven medical research profiles:

  • Vascular and Regenerative Medicine
  • Immunity, Infection and Tolerance
  • Translational Neuroscience
  • Cancer Pathogenesis and Therapy
  • Ageing
  • Innovations in Health Strategy and Quality of Care
  • Biomedical Imaging

More detailed information on the medical research profiles and their underlying research programmes can be found here: LUMC medical research profiles.
