University Medical Centre Utrecht (UMCU)
In the UMC Utrecht, research is concentrated in six programs: cardiovascular health, personalized cancer care, child health, infection & immunity, regenerative medicine and brain. A multidisciplinary approach guarantees that patients benefit from the latest available expertise and innovative technological solutions. Interaction with patients and society creates an ‘innovation loop’ where societal issues guide scientific research and where scientific results quickly move from bench to bedside. Societal stakeholders are involved in all research phases, from prioritizing research questions to evaluating impact.
Role within EXPERT
UMCU focuses on the enabling role of nanoparticles in the delivery of nucleic acids: formulating synthetic and natural nanoparticles, using microfluidics assembly and performing the basic characterization steps as quality control as well as testing their performance in vitro and in vivo experiments.
