Imaging a world in which we can customize treatments for each individual.
Imagine a world where there is no shortage of donor organs, where we can repair or replace organs damaged by injury, disease or ageing. A world in which we can customize treatments for each individual. This is the long-term goal of regenerative medicine. We combine excellent science and technology, we mix outstanding researchers and clinicians, and strive to help our bodies heal themselves.
To improve understanding of stem cell biology; develop innovative technologies; and translate our findings into novel regenerative therapies.
1. To bring novel regenerative treatments for patients to standard clinical care.
2. To provide a center of excellence for biomedical, technological and stem cell-based research.
3. To attract, train and educate the next generation of investigators and caregivers to develop and implement regenerative therapies.
4. To incorporate societal perspectives through active connections to patient (societies) and relevant stakeholders.
5. To actively foster (international) collaboration with academia, government and industry.
The RMU campus physically houses Utrecht University (Faculties of Science and Veterinary Medicine), its academic hospital, the UMC Utrecht (1000 beds), the Hubrecht Institute, and numerous startups. This provides our community with access to patient cohorts, both human and animal, and a solid foundation of developmental and stem cell/organoid biology. RMU fosters open innovation and close collaboration between academia, business and government.
