Maastricht University (MU) is one of the largest academic institutions in the Netherlands. Within MU, the School of Nutrition and Translational Research in Metabolism (NUTRIM) aims to accelerate the translation of science to patient and population. Biomedical research is directly linked to clinical trials and research focusing on behavioral interventions and health promotion.
The School of Oncology and Developmental Biology (GROW) focuses on (epi)genetic and cellular mechanisms, as well as (micro)environmental factors underlying cancer development, with emphasis on translational research. The objective is to develop innovative approaches for individualizing prevention, patient diagnostic and treatment.
Furthermore, as part of the Maastricht Comprehensive Cancer Center (MCCC), MU focuses on research with the ultimate aim to improve outcome for cancer patients along the continuum of prevention, diagnosis, cure and care.
