The Utrecht Science Park physically houses Utrecht University (Faculties of Science and Veterinary Medicine), its academic hospital (UMC Utrecht), 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.
Regenerative Medicine Utrecht (RMU) fosters open innovation and close collaboration between academia, business and government. To facilitate innovation in this interdisciplinary field, the majority of RM researchers works together in one building, next to the Hubrecht Institute. The close proximity, shared resources and facilities, enhance daily interaction and collaboration, and strengthen connections to the clinic.
