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 research themes. Combining cross-border expertise may solve biomedical problems and bring answers not found when working in a stand alone fashion.
Our Research themes
Cell Tissue & Organ (Tx)
Prevention & Lifestyle
Leiden University Research Dossiers
Leiden University has developed Research Dossiers, most of them with a strong multidisciplinary focus. These areas offer ample opportunity for first-class fundamental research, but they are also strongly linked to key issues prevalent in modern national and international societies. The LUMC participates in six areas, in cooperation with the faculties of Science and Social and Behavioural Sciences.
