Innovative solutions for patient needs

In the UMC Utrecht research is concentrated in six multidisciplinary programs with each a limited number of disease targets. Patient care is integrated in these programs. 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. We changed our incentive and reward system to better align it with our mission of connecting with patients and creating societal impact.
