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.
To facilitate innovation required by this interdisciplinary field, we relocated the majority of RM researchers in Utrecht into one building, next to the Hubrecht Institute. The close proximity, shared resources and facilities, has enhanced daily interaction and collaboration, as well as strengthening connections to the clinic.
